Data Backup & Recovery

What is data backup and recovery?

Backup and recovery of data refers to the process of creating copies of important data and storing them in a secure location to protect against data loss. In the event of data loss, recovery involves restoring the backed up data to its original location or another suitable location.

Best practices for backup and recovery include regularly scheduled backups, testing backups for completeness and accuracy, and keeping backups in a secure, off-site location to protect against disasters like fire or theft.

Backup Security

Backup security is important to ensure that backed-up data is protected against unauthorised access, theft, or loss. Best practices for backup security include:


Data backups should be encrypted to protect against unauthorised access. This ensures that even if someone gains access to the backup, they won’t be able to read its contents without the encryption key.

Access controls

Access to backups should be restricted to authorised personnel only, with strong authentication mechanisms in place to ensure that only authorised individuals can access the backups.

Physical security

Backups should be stored in a secure, off-site location to protect against theft, fire, or other disasters. The storage location should have appropriate physical security measures in place, such as surveillance cameras and access controls.

Regular audits

Regular audits of backup procedures and security controls should be conducted to ensure that backups are being performed correctly and that security measures are effective.

By implementing these best practices, organisations can ensure that their backups are secure and protected against unauthorised access, theft, or loss.
