Small business ill prepared for disasters

Posted in General Business,Online Business,Security by ebs4pos on September 29, 2009

Small businesses in Australia and New Zealand have experienced three network disruptions on average in the past 12 months costing them an estimated $30,000 a day, a Symantec report released today has found.

The survey, conducted by Applied Research, found power outages (79 percent) were the number one cause of disruption in the past 12 months, followed by floods, fire or storm (70 percent) and virus attacks (67 percent).

Of concern, however, was that 93 percent of small businesses said they were “somewhat to very satisfied” with their disaster plans even though almost one third didn’t have a plan to deal with such disruptions.
