A calculation of the average cost of each data loss incident must take into account both possibilities. The ability to recover data depends on the cause of the data loss episode (Smith, 2003). Because Aircraft Solutions has valuable intellectual property, the cost of data loss can be astronomical. In fact, 17 percent of data loss incidents cannot be retrieved. It is worth noting that the value of the lost data varies widely depending on the incident and, most critically, on the amount of data lost. Should AS experience a data loss, it may take hundreds of man-hours over several weeks to recover and reconstruct. Such prolonged effort could cost a company thousands, even potentially millions, of dollars. Although it is difficult to precisely measure the intrinsic value of data, and the value of different types of data varies, several sources in the computer literature suggest that the value of 100 megabytes of data is valued at approximately $1 million, translating to $10,000 for each MB of lost data (Smith, 2003). The National Archives and Records report that 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management
