Barbara Imbert at Seagate recently blogged about Symantec’s 2010 SMB information security survey.  As a summary of the findings:

    • 74% are Somewhat/Extremely concerned about information protection
    • 42% lost confidential/proprietary information in the past 12 months
    • 100% saw losses – lost revenue & direct financial costs
    • In the past year, 62% lost devices and 73% saw cyber attacks

Scrolling down in the survey, to the Backup, Archiving and Disaster Recovery section:

    • 47% of respondents never backup
    • 39% said it never occurred to them to do so
    • 50% uses the same software for backup and archiving
    • 43% have no plans and/or no formal plans for a disaster preparedness

Why is this?
