Backup Policy

Backup Policy includes everthing that is need to be in full compliance with all mandated security requirement.

Backup Policy Updated as well as the CIO IT Infrastructure Policy Bundle. The policy has just been updated to take into account everything from GDPR to cloud storage and security implications.

The Backup Policy addresses the issues that you struggle with including:

  • How safe are your information assets in transit and at reset?
  • What protections are in place to prevent hacker access?
  • Does your backup and retention process meet all of your compliance requirements?
  • Who can gain access to your data?
  • What KPI metrics do you have in place?
  • Will the use of the data ensure successful recovery?

Managing backup and recovery in today’s environment is a multi-dimensional challenge with both near and long term business requirements. Recent technological developments in disk backup have had a positive impact on short term data retention requirements (see also BYOD policy).

  • Business and Regulatory Requirements Demand a Long-term Plan
  • Manage and Contain Your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • Encrypt Your Data for Secure Long-term Retention
  • Weigh the Environmental Impacts and Minimize Power and Cooling Costs
  • Simplify Management of the Entire Solution
