The amount of data created and stored every day around the world is staggering. Techjury recently released these statistics which include:
- By the end of 2022, the world will produce 94 zettabytes of data.
- By 2025, 200+ zettabytes of data will reside in cloud storage around the globe.
- 333.2 billion emails are sent every day.
- 99,000 Google searches occur every second.
- VoIP calls use between 0.5MB and 1.3MB of data per minute.
- Cloud data storage around the world will amount to 200+ zettabytes by 2025.
[Note: One zettabyte equals around one trillion gigabytes.]
Techjury asserts that most of the world’s data has been generated within the last two years. Consequently, protecting this data is very important. Below are five reasons why your organization should review your data protection plan:
#1 Safeguard Trade Secrets
Business espionage is real, and the best defense is to proactively protect your data and intellectual property. In doing so, your organization also can improve data integrity and privacy.
#2 Easy Access
Properly protecting data provides quick access to the information you need to anticipate future growth.
#3 Best Backup Plans
By making data protection a priority, your business can bounce back quickly when disaster hits.
#4 Mitigating Data Loss
Cyberthreats are everywhere. A strong data protection plan is one of the best strategies to mitigate data loss.
#5 Maintain Compliance
Proper data protection ensures your critical documents remain private and comply with industry regulations.
Storage data growth statistics indicate that both public and private cloud infrastructure will collect 200+ zettabytes (ZB) of data by 2025, which is up from 2019’s 4.4ZB and 2020’s 44ZB. (Source: Techjury) The good news is that businesses will have completed most of their digitalization goals to produce this data. The downside is that cybercrime will continue to thrive.
