Backup and Recovery

The Importance of Backup and Recovery

A backup is a representative copy of data at a specific time. The phrase "backup and recovery" usually refers to the transfer of copied files from one location to another, along with the various operations performed on those files.

A good backup strategy is essential for data security. Backup is the last defense against data loss, providing a way to restore original data. It has the following advantages:

  • Protecting you in the event of hardware failure, accidental deletions or disaster;
  • Protecting you against unauthorised changes made by an intruder;
  • Providing you with a history of an intruder's activities by looking through archived, older backups.
