When a natural disaster strikes, protecting your digital information can often be the last thing on your mind. Worrying about your own personal safety and that of your family and friends, as well as protecting or saving your possessions can take all of the time and energy you have available. Since your focus should (rightfully) be on helping those around you, important business information can be lost if not backed up.
Because natural disasters can be unexpected and surprising, protecting your business data is of critical importance. Data is near impossible to replace, and without it, many businesses can be completely wiped out by an act of God.
Online backup service providers like Mozy can protect your data by storing a copy of it in a data center. This infographic illustrates the disruptions that can occur when the status quo is changed, and tells the story of three different businesses that were able to rise up and recover from disasters quickly with the help of cloud backup.
