Clear Benefits, But do A Reality Check First

by Kurt Hildebrand | 08.25.14

In a world of big data, having a disaster recovery and business continuity strategy in place is essential. A Ponemon Institute study showed that a single minute of downtime costs the average business $5,600. As companies continue to increase automation, that number will only rise. An Aberdeen report found that hourly downtime costs increased by 38% from 2010 to 2012 to an industry average of over $400,000 a year.

Storing Big Data

The Complexities of Storage Compliance

Time to create a strategy and framework for enterprise data

We live in a hyper-connected world filled with business executives who are hyper-sensitive about data security. As they should be.

The healthcare and retail industries seem to be the most at risk. Since 2009, 29.3 million patient healthcare records have been compromised. With the growth of healthcare systems surging in 2014, so will breaches of data and patient privacy, according to industry reports. In retail, with a national chain’s 2013 holiday cyber-security failure still fresh in consumer’s minds, a major arts and crafts supplier confirmed that there was a security breach within some of its U.S. credit card processing systems between May 2013 and January 2014. That breach may have compromised about 2.6 million credit cards.
