The statistics on hacking are remarkable, even startling. The National Cyber Security Alliance found that 20 percent of small businesses are compromised annually. Amazingly, three out of five organizations that get targeted are bankrupt within six months.
The fact is, you can add many security measures to protect your site, but hacking is always a possibility. In these situations, you have enough concerns just dealing with passwords and trying to prevent intruders from invading again. Routine or daily backups allow you to recover lost, hacked or corrupted files or databases much more smoothly. Bradley & Company adds:
“The beauty of having a complete backup of your entire website installation is that instead of trying to ferret out all the infected code it is much easier, faster and safer to just delete the site and rebuild it from the backup.”
You want to be able to sleep at night.
Backup recovery plans are critical so that any website is able to maintain business continuity and achieve efficient, stress-free disaster recovery. 5 Point Digital notes that it can be difficult for small businesses to relate to the huge corporate hacks that often make the news. Nonetheless, these breaches are a very real threat to small businesses. Peace of mind is simple, though, with a high-quality backup solution.
