If the world wasn’t entirely digital before 2020 it certainly was in 2021. Since the onset of the global pandemic it’s been impossible for businesses worldwide to function with a significant online infrastructure and staff base. Luckily the technology was already in place to facilitate the transition, however, it still posed many problems and considerable risks.
One of the biggest threats businesses faced from the digital transition was the threats from cyber-criminals. Cybercriminals are always a threat but threat but they are particularly dangerous when a company goes through a software upgrade, a move to new facilities, or changes their IT set up. In 2020, all of these things happened at once for many businesses, raising the red flag from cyber threats.
Indeed, many businesses have suffered in this time. Thay have seen revenues lost, sensitive data go missing, and IT systems brought to their knees by viruses and worms. These cyber attacks are responsible for millions of dollars going missing and customer’s security being compromised. Along with the obvious financial considerations, an event like this can damage a company’s reputation irreparably.
Thankfully there are some useful solutions to these issues, and almost all of them include some form of disaster recovery. When things go wrong, and a cyberattack is successful it puts you on a footing of damage limitation. With disaster recovery software in place you can still access all the data previously thought stolen or lost and reinstate it. It may not solve every problem but it will solve many, including any loss to company reputation.
