Data Backup and Security
Backing up your data securely and consideration for your archiving requirements are probably the most important parts of data management.
- Backup refers to your 'live' or 'working' data. Backing up your data is essential to avoid the risk of losing data through accidental deletion or hard-drive failure.
- Security refers to keeping your data safe, or controlling access to your data, to ensure data are kept free from corruption eg. encryption.
