SMBs lack proper disaster recovery plan

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

A new survey has found a large discrepancy between how small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) perceive their disaster readiness when it comes to protecting their data and their actual level of preparedness.

The Symantec 2009 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey of over 1,650 respondents from 28 countries, found that 93 percent of Australian and New Zealand businesses are satisfied with their IT disaster plans, yet the average SMB has experienced three outages within the past 12 months, with the leading causes in Australia and New Zealand being a power outage (79 percent), a natural disaster (70 percent), a virus or hacker attack (67 percent), an employee accidently deleting data (65 percent) and an outage as a result of upgrading or changing consumer systems (63 percent).
