BOSTON, MA – September 9, 2013 – /BackupReview.info/ — Hurricanes. Tornados. Equipment failure. Theft. They’re the stuff of nightmares for small business owners who rely on access to their data to keep their businesses thriving. September is National Preparedness Month, and Carbonite, Inc. (NASDAQ: CARB), a leading provider of cloud solutions that keep small businesses and home offices running smoothly, urges small businesses to take the time to develop a disaster preparedness plan for their businesses.
“When you think about all the things that can compromise your data ? from earthquakes and blizzards to fires and human error ? it’s surprising that only 13 percent of small businesses think a data disaster could happen to them*,” said Pete Lamson, senior vice president of Cloud Backup, Carbonite. “Small business owners should ask themselves what they would do if their company’s emails, billing records, customer files, inventory reports and tax information suddenly disappeared. If they’re unsure, it’s time to create a data disaster preparedness plan.”
Creating a data disaster plan may seem intimidating, but here are a few simple tips to help small business owners get started:
No one wants to think about their office burning down or a computer glitch taking out their entire system, but preparing ? just in case ? is the first step to recovering quickly after a data disaster. Still living in denial? Keep these sobering statistics in mind: 65 percent of small business owners believe they would lose less than $500 if they couldn’t function for a day*, but 40 percent of small businesses impacted by disaster never reopen.**
