Data loss and data protection are important points that every organization needs to keep in mind. When data loss happens in corporate organizations, it results in revenue losses, customer dissatisfaction and even causes some organizations to go out of business.

What returned is a white paper that looks at the facts and figures of data loss from several studies from:

  • Boston Computing – Data Loss Statistics

Another study found 6% of PC’s this year will experience data loss.

One study found this year there will be 4.6 million instances of data loss.
