Data loss has become a prevalent issue for ALL businesses. A survey conducted on the 2019 State of SMB (small-to-medium-sized-business) Cyber Security shows just that. On average, companies with 10-49 employees lost $41,269, those with 50-249 employees were in the hole for $48,686, and those with 250-1,000 employees ended up losing $64,085 per incident.
And yet still, some business owners are frozen in time in terms of combating the issue. Some won’t budge when it comes to change, and in this case, it tragically effects budgets ($$$).
But What About the Good Ole’ Days?
Yes, we remember and cherish the days when connecting with customers was achieved only through phone calls and in-person visits (whether they come into your shop or you travel to their offices) as opposed to online transactions, emails, and all these other ways to get lost on a screen. Moreover, we too knew of a time when enjoying the day really meant taking in the world with those around you, instead of consistently burying your head in technology. Those days don’t have to end, but that also doesn’t mean new ones can’t begin.
“The good ole days weren’t always good, and tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems.” Billy Joel
The Thing About Change:
Many humans tend to have a nostalgic outlook and grip on the past or at least on areas of the past, and an uneasy feeling of discontent for the future because the future is uncertain. The past is a friend, or at least an acquaintance, that we know and understand. The scarcity of knowledge and surplus of skepticism regarding the future can be a frightening thing, but the present/future is changing all around us and will do so whether or not we all like it.
What We Can Do About It:
We understand the feeling of being caught in between, and fortunately, a happy medium is the way to go. Let’s live in today. The key for us all then, would be to use the best from the past, present, and try to be aware of what’s to come in the future.
Because our society is moving so heavily in a technological direction, the cyber security threat that comes with that involves us all… no matter how technologically unsavvy you’re happy being. All businesses are vulnerable to losing data.
Point is, sometimes we have to adapt simply to survive. Not everything is going to be our way, so there’s instances where we ought to take after a soldier’s mentality instead and do what has to be done to keep moving forward.
Let’s use the technology at our disposal now to preserve the past. Don’t risk leaving your business unprotected and “out in the open” to be blindsided by data loss. You have the power to take control of your business’s future by securing it in the present. The fate of your business heavily relies on a decision to secure your data over time.
Combine the original ways of business with the best and most necessary of the new (data protection). Original carries a unique sentimental sense for everyone, consumers included. So, carry on with the classics while enabling your business to carry on without downtime due to data loss because you’ve got yourself a business-grade data backup solution.
The Time Traveling Benefit:
Your data doesn’t have to change like the rest of us. The concept of time travel is similar to that of a data backup solution. Think about it. The basic goals and purpose of time travel are achieved here.
Imagine being able to turn back time to a point when all was well, when there were no mistakes, issues, or dilemmas holding you back. Nice, right? Well, what if we told you there’s a way to do so… for your data. Ever had one of those “I wish that never happened” moments? That mistake, that data issue you’re so concerned with? Gone. Erased. Nonexistent. It’s as if it never happened.
That hacker? – never shut you down from operations. Accidentally deleted or lost important files? – no longer accidentally deleted nor lost (still important). Oh, and by the way, that natural disaster didn’t wipe out your business’s chances of getting years of data back!
Whatever your data-loss troubles may be, a backup solution allows you to fix them because your data is safely and consistently backed-up over time. You’ll have many errorless dates and times to choose from if you want to restore your data to a previous state.
Put it this way – if you could time travel and change for the better, (making your life a whole lot easier now and in the future) wouldn’t you? Get your business’s data-time-machine – I mean, data backup solution – free for your first 30-days.
