Being Proactive with Data Recovery Pays Off

Organizations that automate disaster recovery programs can cut the daily cost of a data breach by more than half, a new IBM study reveals.

Both the cost and frequency of data breaches have been shown to decrease by more than 30% in organizations that embrace proactive recovery programs. Overall, the study shows a distinct competitive advantage in financial results, operational efficiency, and corporate reputation for organizations that deploy automated disaster recovery to maintain business continuity following a data breach.

On average, responding companies that prioritize business continuity management saved 44 days in the identification of the incident and 38 days in the containment of the data breach.
