As cyber-attacks and ransomware become more prevalent in our world today, it's important to understand the cybersecurity risks that all businesses face and invest in a disaster recovery plan.
For instance, according to the Ponemon Institute's Cost of a Data Breach Report, the average cost of a data breach can reach as high as $3.86 million, with healthcare being the most costly at $7.13 million. Not to mention, the average time it takes to identify and contain a data breach is, on average, a whopping 280 days. Of course, the shorter the lifecycle of the breach, the better. A breach lasting under 200 days costs $1 million less than one with a lifecycle longer than 200 days.
A variety of errors can affect your data, including natural disasters, equipment failure, insider threats, and even employer errors.
Consider the following impacts of a total system failure and the repercussions it brings:

- Hindrance of employee productivity and loss of labor hours.
- Progress disruption with current projects.
Backups serve as a foundation for any solid disaster recovery plan. Architecting, a disaster recovery solution, involves replicating many of the capabilities of your current infrastructure.
