Disasters always strike when we least expect them. Failed hard drives, backups not working, network hacked, fire, theft, water damage, cyber theft, ransomware – the list goes on. When things do go wrong there is a tendency to persevere with an existing IT provider or in house staff but a serious IT disaster needs an experienced and robust response.

Disaster Recovery Readiness

A serious IT disaster can hit your business at any time and being prepared is the best way to shorten the resulting downtime. 

Good backups are key. Every backup system needs to be tested regularly – at least once every few months it is worth having your IT provider do a sample restore and certainly once a year you need to ensure that a full recovery is attempted. We have seen many instances where a backup system has NEVER been tested – you don’t want a disaster to turn into a double disaster so ensure your backups are certified to work.

Computing Australia can inspect your present backups and run a full, simulated disaster recovery. It is better to find out in advance if things are not working as expected. We find a lot of examples where a company has outgrown their backup solution and their IT provider has had to take steps to patch things up – reducing the backup frequency or reducing the range of data being backed up can extend the life of a backup but never end well.

Other steps you need to take to be ready for the worst include:

  • Maintaining an up to date register of all key passwords
  • Ensuring firewalls are configured correctly and tested
  • Having a written and tested disaster recovery plan
  • Staff training to ensure they follow good data protection habits

Cyber Security lapses are costly

Many businesses shy away from spending money on cyber security prevention but the real cost lies in doing nothing. Don’t wait until it is too late to act. Failing to be disaster-ready is wasting valuable time. Act now before it is too late.

Consider the following statistics:

  • 33% of businesses have experienced a cyber crime
  • Average days to resolve an external attack = 23
  • Average days to resolve an internal attack = 51
  • Average cost of a cyber crime attack = $276,323
  • 29% of attacks result in data loss
  • 25% of attacks result in revenue loss
  • 29% of attacks result in productivity loss
  • 4% attacks caused equipment damage
  • Overall disruption of businesses amounts to 40%

If you weigh up these figures, you can see that any cyber security attack is going to result in significant loss.

The danger from within

50% of all cyber security events happen from inside an organisation. That’s a sobering fact.

Some of these are outright cyber crimes initiated by an employee, while others are caused by a lack of cyber security awareness. Staff are already well past the limitations that an external hacker will face because they are inside your network.

There are many steps that can be taken to detect and deter malicious activity by staff. Sometimes these are very simple strategies like tightening security permissions on the network but can also include software to monitor employees in real time.

We also offer cybersecurity training for the staff. Our experts would guide your staff in understanding and avoiding the pitfalls of cybersecurity, how even innocent activities like clicking an untrusted link can be fatal to your business.
