More businesses are adopting the cloud and virtualisation, but are failing to update their data recovery plans.
The Kroll Ontrack Cloud Survey and Report found that 62 per cent of organisations are using the cloud but only 33 per cent regularly update and test their file and software recovery plans.
Around 26 per cent of those polled reported data loss from a virtual environment and three per cent had seen data loss from the cloud.
Some 16 per cent experienced data loss from both the cloud and a virtual environment.
"However, data loss can occur in any environment, regardless of the specific technology. The key to minimising a data loss risk and successfully recovering from a loss is asking the right questions prior to adopting a new storage medium and amending your policies and procedures accordingly," said Abhik Mitra, data recovery product manager.
Worryingly, only 17 per cent test their data recovery plan regularly to prevent any problems and around 13 per cent admitted they had no recovery plan at all.
When looking for data recovery services, look for one with a track record of success. Ontrack Data Recovery services has 50,000 successful data recovery stories to tell every year.
