Frequently Asked Questions

Top

What exactly are Backup and Data Retention Services?

Backup and Data Retention Services involve the systematic and regular copying of your digital information, such as files, databases, and applications, to a secure location. This process ensures that your data is protected and can be restored in case of accidental deletion, hardware failures, cyberattacks, or other unforeseen events. Data retention refers to the duration for which these backups are stored to meet regulatory requirements and business needs.

Why do I need Backup and Data Retention Services?

Data loss can occur due to various reasons, including hardware malfunctions, software glitches, cyber threats, and human error. Backup and Data Retention Services provide a safety net by maintaining copies of your critical data. This ensures you can recover your information and continue operations swiftly after any data loss event, minimising downtime and potential financial losses.

How often should I back up my data?

The frequency of backups depends on factors like the volume of data changes, the criticality of the data, and your business’s tolerance for data loss. Generally, regular backups, such as daily or hourly, are recommended for crucial data. However, this can vary based on your specific needs and the nature of your business.

Where is my data stored, and how is it secured?

Your data is typically stored in secure off-site locations, which can include on-premises backup servers or cloud-based storage. These environments are designed with robust security measures to safeguard your data from unauthorised access, breaches, and physical damage. Encryption, access controls, and multi-factor authentication are commonly employed to ensure data security.

How long should I retain backup data?

Data retention periods depend on legal requirements, industry regulations, and your organisation’s policies. Some data may need to be retained for a specific period due to compliance reasons, while other data might have shorter retention periods. It’s crucial to align your data retention strategy with your business’s legal obligations and operational needs.
