Since its origins, the protection of information in companies has been a fundamental requirement, since the consequences of losing it may directly affect the functionality and operation of an organization.
This protection goes beyond equipment and technology resources, and includes documents, manuals and writings, legal, operational, technical and others, and usually makes up a company’s entire digital platform.
In terms of technology, this not only covers the use of a tool to perform the backups, but the application of and compliance with standards and recommendations (in terms of security, protection and physical provision) for users to follow for the protection and assurance of data.
These solutions can be as simple as those provided by the tools of the computers and servers operating systems’, which may allow copying the information in storage devices. These tools should preferably have adequate security and protection measures; and those that are more complex and elaborate (for example those that keep the information backed up in varied devices and in different places) should be easy to administrate and guarantee the integrity of the volumes that contain the backups.
