Storage Awards 2019 Winners

The Storage Awards 2019 Winners

A packed evening saw the winners announced for the 2019 Storage Awards

main headline


Welcome to our June eNewsletter, which includes some thought-provoking research findings about how often organisations are backing up data, and perhaps more importantly - though frequently overlooked - how often they test that data can be recovered.

According to the research, two in five businesses stated that they back up their data every 12 hours or less frequently - with a worrying 17% leaving a gap of more than 24 hours between backup copies, which obviously creates the potential for significant data loss in the event of an attack.

On the testing side, almost two-thirds of users only test their BC/DR scenarios and recoverability on an annual or quarterly basis. This lack of testing means businesses are missing opportunities to re-evaluate and adapt theirstrategies so that they - and their customers - are protected from disruptions and disasters. Better testing should enable businesses to recover quickly if they do fall victim to a cyberattack. Do you know how often your BC/DR recoverability is tested?

In closing (and at the risk of repeating myself) I’d like to remind readers once again that nominations for the 2020 Storage Awards are still open, till July 13th - so you still have a few weeks to make your voices heard. The event itself has been postponed until October 15th. For attendance/sponsorship enquiries, as ever, contact Lyndsey at the office.
