Up to 45% of businesses close after various incidents, out of the remaining 25% will close in 2 years.
The main cause of incidents, which result in downtime, actually is human factor. Lack of proper disaster recovery plan and personnel trainings lead to errors made by employees often due to ordinary negligence. Unplanned updates and various patches in the system or program can also provoke emergency, which is the second major cause for disasters. Besides, technical issues in the server room, power outages, onsite fire or other force majeure situations may be the cause, too.

The best option is to rely on professionals for creation and implementation of the action plan, who will take in account individual requirements of your business.
