Cost of a Data Breach (How to Estimate Recovery Time)

Editor's Note: Our Disaster Recovery Calculator is currently undergoing maintenance, and as a result, you will be re-routed to our partner Datto's Disaster Recovery Calculator. Thank you!

It's no mystery that data security incidents are costly - IBM reports an average global recovery bill of $3.68 million, with 60% of SMBs facing closure within 6 months. But these numbers can feel, at times, abstract or hyperbolic. Are they directly applicable to your business, in comparable verticals, or reflective of employee structures similar to your own? Fortunately, iCorps' Recovery Time Calculator removes ambiguity from the equation. You can estimate the total cost of a data breach to your organization - factoring in business critical systems, hourly revenue, local versus cloud platforms, and more. Here's how it works:

 

Back-Up Your Cloud Data

Ensure you're backing up your cloud data with a solution such as Datto's Cloud Continuity for PCs. Datto's program works in four ways:

  1. File Recovery

    • your desktops and laptops are automatically backed up to Datto's cloud. Backups are continuous and independent of location - ensuring your mobile employees are covered.
  2. Device Recovery

    • these backups will continue unless a connected device is interrupted, whether from a malicious or accidental source. If the imaging verification notices a change or halt in backups, it will send automatic alerts so someone can address the problem.
  3. Cloud Virtualization

    • Datto's Management Portal is highly customizable, allowing you to configure agents, recover files and devices, and manage virtual content. You can easily view screenshots and backup activity without being tied to on-premise hardware. 
  4. Ransomware Solutions

    • with Datto Cloud Continuity, any PC that's been affected by ransomware will revert to the configuration recorded at its last back-up.
