It is essential for a firm of any size to have business in place a business continuity plan that ensures operations remain unaffected by occurrences of unpredicted events such as cyber attacks, natural disasters, or other external threats. With advancements in technology, attacks like ransomeware are becoming more common and complex than before, making it necessary for organizations to add ransomeware protection to their data backup systems. However, many businesses are yet to upgrade their existing legacy backup and data recovery systems. With cybersecurity threats only expected to aggravate, companies that fail to invest in the latest technologies are at risk of data breaches. Moreover, maintaining business continuity will also help reduce long-term technology costs, decrease the need for manual and time-consuming IT fixes and detect problems at the first sign of a potential disaster.
