IT technologies and practices

Nowadays, with the evolvement of IT technologies and practices, ensuring data backup and recovery can turn into an investment directly increasing business resilience, development and cyber protection. Backup, Archive and Recovery solutions, that are flexible and tailored to the organization’s objectives and the IT environment include integrated implementation of the two main backup types: backup of business data and backup of applications’ configuration. Thus, backups are not just a copy of data stored somewhere, but they add value to the organization. Both, the IT management and the organization as a whole, can benefit from them.

Backup and recovery strategy

Operational data loss due to security breaches, technical failure or just a human error is a real threat that can cause huge damage to the organization. Therefore, the best practices recommend the 3-2-1 backup rule:  3 copies of the data, 2 copies on different storage media, and 1 offsite copy (at another physical location, another region, or another availability zone).

However, this alone is not enough. It is necessary to look at it from the point of the overall backup and recovery strategy which is the basis for achieving Business Continuity.

Furthermore, the business objectives defined within the strategy (recovery time and point objectives – RTO and RPO) align those management priorities and considerations with the IT.  Regular testing of recovery procedures gives visibility on business objectives completion, as well as provides information about required resources.  Regular testing is a key part, but still, it is often overlooked.

A strategy for achieving business continuity is needed even when all corporate data is in the cloud. In such a case, the responsibility for data protection lies within the service provider. Still, there is a question for you: How can you mitigate the risk of having all critical corporate data in the hands of an external provider(s)?

Are the technological measures for protection against equipment failure enough?

The provision of additional storage space for data copies, independent from a single external provider, is a technological measure for increasing data availability. In this way, you achieve a level of protection against technical malfunctions, and data loss caused by technical failure. However, these measures alone are not enough to ensure business continuity in case of human or logical errors. Nor do they provide a direct benefit for business applications development, such as: providing an up-to-date environment for developing new services or for implementation of new systems; providing flexible platforms or service provider choice; avoiding vendor/technology lock-in.
