When a business suffers a cybersecurity disaster, one of the most long-lasting, detrimental effects comes in the form of downtime, or a loss of business operations and profits. A lack of disaster recovery planning can result in a chain of events that turns a minor cybersecurity event into a data breach and resultant catastrophic business disaster. Many small and medium-sized businesses simply don’t have the disaster recovery planning in place to survive even a partial loss of data and IT functionality for a short time, much less the related fall-out and loss of revenue that results from a full-blown data breach.
