In the last twelve months, digital has overwhelmingly strengthened its presence in our professional and personal lives, supporting, accelerating, simplifying – and in many cases even making possible – activities, processes, even relationships.
For better or worse, we are increasingly dependent on technology, and today it is customary to rely on electronic devices, such as tablets and smartphones, and less and less on paper.
1. Technology Is Not Infallible
Our most important information is now more and more often contained only on devices which by their nature are, however, subject to unpredictable failures and malfunctions. Backups help manage fatalities, avoiding “painful” data loss.
2. To Err Is Human
Although we try to aspire to perfection, we are “only” human, and therefore sooner or later, we will make mistakes. And errors such as accidental deletion of data, the loss of essential devices, an incorrect procedure, an incorrect click can permanently compromise the data.
A data backup and restore solution is essential to be able to correct any mistakes.
3. The Unexpected Is Around The Corner
Malware, and in particular Ransomware, are the leading cause of disruption at the moment. It is estimated that 1 in 10 computers are infected with malware every month, while in 2019, a business was the victim of Ransomware every 14 seconds.
Thefts, data breaches – or data breaches – losses, various malfunctions (accidental or not), are other problems now on the agenda and unpredictable.
In addition to the permanent loss of data, being caught unprepared can cause, especially in companies and economic activities, an increase in IT costs, the reduction of trust in the company, the compromise of the relationship with customers and suppliers reputational problems.
