Where to start with Data Security?
Data Security begins with backups, but you must also consider restoring tests to ensure the backups are working.
Archiving is also an important element to ensure you are removing old data in a timely fashion and in accordance with your retention policies.
Data is key to business continuity.
It begins with planning to ensure all key systems can be restored in the event of a disaster. Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is about putting in place systems to ensure disaster recovery. A key element is regular testing to demonstrate and improve your organisations’ ability to recover.
For some organisations, data security may extend to the implementation of a training or sandbox environment of their key systems to ensure no risks are taken with production data.
