Backup and Disaster Recovery

1) Do you carry out automated backups? (Something that happens daily without human intervention)

2) Do the backups automatically go to an offsite location? (Extremely important as some of the latest viruses can attack businesses onsite backups)

3) Do your onsite and offsite backups get tested daily or weekly to make sure they are actually recoverable and working? (No point having them if they don’t work when needed)

4) Do you know what is actually being backed up? (Just data or your system and applications too)

5) Would your business recover if you experienced a total loss of data? (are you confident of your current solution)

6) Would it be helpful if staff could recover an individual deleted document if it was important to have back?
