Data Loss from Viruses

The majority of businesses that experience data loss will not recover. You may think that, if you are careful, then you will not need a backup solution, but statistics say otherwise. A recent study revealed that 46% of users experience data loss every year due to viruses! This figure makes sense when you consider the three most common factors of data loss.

Hard Drive Failure
Hard drives are not built to last forever. Eventually, they will fail; and when they do, they will take your data with them to their silicone grave. In a study by Google, it was found that hard drives have a 50% chance of failing within five years. This is why server manufacturers recommend that you cycle out your old server for a new one every three years.

Computer Theft
Even if you live in a nice neighborhood, that does not mean that your home is impenetrable to thieves, or that your home is not a target. According to the Bureau of Justice, 15% of homes will be burglarized each year. This is why you lock your doors, even if you leave your home to go down the street. Once inside a home, the thief will steal expensive items like computers, ipads and laptops.

Businesses tend to have better security than homes, but they still have to guard against employee theft. Employees are not just stealing pens and staplers; there is also the real threat of workers stealing sensitive company data. If an employee takes home a company laptop, then a thief is more likely to walk away with it than if it was locked up safe in your office.

Computer Viruses
Computer viruses can do more damage than just slowing down your computer or stealing credit card information. There are many nasty viruses that will infect your hard drive and wipe it clean. According to various Internet surveys, computer viruses account for 4-to-7% of all data loss.
