Blog: Disaster recovery – the 4 major causes of data loss revealed.

“For most organisations, the question is not if a disaster or outage could happen, but when it will occur and how severe it will be. “Most importantly, they need to ask themselves how prepared they will be to recover from a disaster scenario.”

Disaster Recovery Preparedness Benchmark Survey, 2014 Annual Report

According to a recent DRPB report, IT professionals, citing multiple issues, suggested both software failure/network issues and human error as the biggest causes of data loss:

1) Software failure + network failure (50%)
2) Human error (43.5%)
3) Power failure (24%)
4) Weather (14%)

It’s not just about hardware failure!

Also one in four companies never test their DR plans and when they do, more than 65% fail. This makes for sobering reading.

With this in mind Trustco and Zerto invite you to sign up for a webinar which will address common industry DR/BC concerns & help you put your DR strategy to the test.
