One of the best studies regarding data loss in the world, conducted by David Smith of Pepperdine University, shows that the root cause and incident percentage of data loss incidents to be the following: hardware failure – 40%, human error – 29%, software corruption – 13%, theft – 9%, computer viruses – 6%, and hardware destruction – 3%.
Preventing data loss can still stay within your budget. The implications of experiencing a data loss event can be catastrophic, which is why understanding some of the root causes, and having the right IT, is most important.
Hardware Failure: Can be internal or external. Data storage devices, such as hard drives, are susceptible to destruction through physical or mechanical faults. Overheating, water and fire, power failure, mishandling, and improper connection are just a few ways a hard drive can be damaged.
Human Error: Data manipulation, which occurs at almost all businesses, involves a lot of typing, editing, updating, and deletions, processes that are prone to user errors. Other ways human error can occur is through accidental deletion of data files and spillage of liquids.
Software Corruption: Any application used for requesting data can crash, resulting in data loss. Error also occurs in backup, including failure of systems to create file copies and the inability to stop automatic deletion of files.
