From a VZ email about BC/DR Planning:
"According to research by the University of Texas, only 6% of companies survive a catastrophic data loss, while 43% never reopen and 51% close within two years. In spite of those shocking statistics, Gartner Research estimates that only 35% of small and medium businesses have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place."
"Researchers estimate that companies lose, on average, over $80,000 for every hour of downtime."
I like BC/DR stats.
