Disasters can strike at any time. Whether it’s a natural disaster, cyber-attack, hardware failure, or any other disruption to your usual system, your business needs to be prepared to handle the issues that comes its way.
That’s where disaster recovery planning comes in.
The Cost of IT Outages
The cost of IT outages can be staggering. The average cost of downtime is $5,600 per minute, according to a study by Gartner. Obviously, this will change depending on factors such as business size, but it highlights just how expensive outages can be. In the case above, if your business experienced a four-hour outage, it could cost you more than $1 million in lost revenue and productivity.
