- Within a 12-month period, the typical SMB will suffer 6 computer outages.
- The median cost of downtime for an SMB is $12,500 per day after a data-loss disaster.
- If a SMB can’t resume operations within 10 days of a natural disaster, it won’t likely survive.

What is Your Data Backup & Disaster Recovery Plan?
When businesses consider data backup and disaster recovery, they have many questions, but at the top of their priorities is cost.
Since the cost of implementing a disaster recovery system can vary greatly, a better question to ask is “what should we budget for business continuity planning?”
When making this decision, consider:
- What type of backup is required and how much storage will you need?
- How many users and devices do you need to maintain, back up and support?
- How quickly do you need to recover the data?
- How much does downtime really cost your business?
Should You Schedule a Network Assessment?
From simple mistakes that put your company at risk to the rise in consumer grade file sync services in the workplace (like Dropbox), many businesses throughout Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin are still in the dark ages when it comes to network security.
If you want to wrap your head around cyber security basics and understand how your network would stand up against a data breach or disaster, one of the best ways to get a snapshot of the overall “health” of your network is through a network vulnerability assessment.
We recommend these assessments be completed on a regular basis.
This assessment offers you a comprehensive report on the areas of your network that are typically the most unsecured. Network vulnerability assessments are the key to closing security loopholes lurking within your network and eliminating cyber security threats.
Conducting assessments on a regular basis helps to decrease the chances of a data breach within your company.
While network security assessments are important for all businesses, they are of particular importance if your company handles private personal information, credit card info, eCommerce, or you need to maintain compliance.
This is a highly recommended, proactive step we recommend you take right now.
