What is a Backup Policy and Procedures?

This document should define the requirements for backups, the protection of that backup data and the testing to ensure the data can be utilised when necessary. There should be sufficient backup facilities to ensure that all important information and software can be recovered after a disaster or media failure.

Why is a Backup Policy and Procedures important?

Creating the policy and following the procedures outlined will give confidence to prospective clients, existing clients and other external stakeholders that your company is following best practice and that their data is safe when they are dealing with you.

It is common now for Cyber Insurance providers to require detailed evidence of the backup processes in place to protect your Company’s data. They will often require the backup data to be held independently from the live data to ensure that a single incident does not impact both the live and backup environment.
