Today businesses operate very differently compared to how they functioned thirty years from now. Earlier most of the business activity took place manually, everything thing was noted down on paper with a pen. Every office had files and large stocks of paperwork keeping a record of the business activities. This posed two problems; firstly in the case of a disaster all the data was lost. If a fire had occurred then all the files would burn. Secondly, keeping track of information was very troublesome and chaotic.

A lot of space was required in the office to store the files and several assistants needed to be hired to retrieve the information from the bulk of files effectively. To avoid all these kinds of problems the use of computer became more and more abundant in the businesses enterprises. Use of computers provided efficiency to the businesses operations as well as remarkably improved performance. However, even the use of computers did not fully eliminate the probability of data loss. With the use of computers the nature of the disaster became more technical than physical, for instance viruses and online hackers.
