Welcome to the final installment of our “Expect the Unexpected” video series! Our goal is to help you prepare for events that you cannot control, making sure you’re ready to protect your clients’ data at all times and provide business continuity, no matter what.

In this post, we'll recap our last two topics and discuss an important additional element of BDR to prepare for. Check out the videos below to get everything you need to enhance data protection and business continuity, and be ready for what's next. 

Expect: Cyber Attack

Cyberthreats against small and mid-sized businesses are on the rise. Worst yet, they’re getting more creative every time, making it hard for employees to see them coming until they get hit. Phishing emails are the leading cause of attacks, with ransomware being one of the most common threats.

In a recent survey commissioned by Continuum with SMBs, 64% of the respondents admitted having experienced a cyberattack. And the average total cost for them is almost $54K dollars.

 

Watch the video above to help reduce your chances of being an easy target for hackers and better prepare to reinstate your clients’ business faster in case of an incident.

Expect: Human Error

According to Aberdeen Group, human error represents 73% of the reasons for data loss. 

 

In this video, you'll learn about how the right disaster recovery plan will allow you to quickly restore your clients’ environment and get business back up to speed—even if someone makes a mistake.

Expect: Natural Disasters

If your client is in an area of risk for natural disaster, one thing you can control, and even plan for it, is the safety of their data.
