Data Protection & Compliance

Data protection is the primary foundation of a business continuity plan.

Best Practices

Organizations must implement a data protection strategy that appropriately manages risk in order to minimize potential downtime.

  • Tape backup solutions have up to a 40% recovery failure rate and come with high administrative costs
  • Online backup solutions lack the ability to manage backups of critical databases or applications and operating systems
  • Both solutions are challenged with meeting efficient recovery timeframes for large data sets

Data protection should include user data, critical databases, applications and operating systems on servers and workstations across the organization. Local and offsite backup policies are advised for increased speed of backup/recovery executions, and further redundancy.
