Activity 4 Do you backup?

Timing: Allow about 15 minutes

Write a short description of how you backup data. Describe the different technologies you use, how often you backup and what risks remain.

If you don’t perform backups, but you work for an organisation who does, briefly explain their backup procedure (you might need to talk to the person in charge of the company’s computers).

If neither of these situations applies, briefly explain what sort of backup procedures you think would offer you a reasonable amount of security.

Warning: Do not identify your company or organisation if you discuss this with others.
