The level of risk from new technologies to businesses is forecast to increase over the coming years, a new report from analyst Gartner has revealed.
According to the organisation’s 2014 CEO and Senior Executive Survey, data recovery policies may become increasingly important to business success, as the level of risk associated with the uptake of new IT infrastructure is rising.
Indeed, the report forecasts that 60 per cent of all large businesses by 2020 will suffer some form of service failure as a result of IT teams being unable to manage digital risk in new technologies over the coming years.
Moreover, one-third of large enterprises will employ a digital risk officer by 2017 in an effort to tackle this problem.
Paul Proctor, vice-president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, commented: “Digital risk officers will require a mix of business acumen and understanding with sufficient technical knowledge to assess and make recommendations for appropriately addressing digital business risk.”
It is wise to choose a data recovery company that has a track record in recovering from the type of data loss you have experienced.
