SB061 Regularly backs up data

Data is valuable and should be backed up regularly. Lost or corrupted data can be restored from backups. Data should be backed up using multiple, independent means (such as cloud storage and removable media). So if one fails, others are unaffected.

Why is it important?

Data can be lost, locked, or become corrupted. Restoring backed up data is an essential part of a disaster recovery plan.

Without back ups, data may be lost forever causing financial and reputational harm. Time and other resources may have to be committed to replace lost data.
