Backup/Restore & Disaster Recovery
Backup, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery management all mitigate risk and protect data. Backups safeguard against loss, corruption or accidental deletion of data. Files can be restored from backups. The restoration of a few files from backups is practical but it may take hours or days to restore a lot of data. Backups are taken at specific times and are best held off site. Restoration of backups will be undertaken as and when necessary. The restore process should be tested on a regular basis to meet security requirements. Disaster Recovery is the method of getting businesses and organisations technology back up and running when data is unavailable for a long period of time.
