End User Data Backup Policy
Data without an associated backup is only as reliable as the system upon which it is stored — and every system has a finite lifespan or may be susceptible to malware or hacking efforts.
This policy from TechRepublic Premium provides guidelines for reliable and secure backups of end user data. It outlines the responsibilities of IT departments and employees to identify tasks and action items for each group. The policy can be customized to fit the needs of your organization.
From the policy:
IT staff will perform the following tasks:
Designate appropriate network-based home or local directories — to be referred to as “protected directories” — or cloud storage applications for users (such as Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox or some other third-party application) to store data that will be backed up, either through direct means via backup software or synchronization capabilities.
The download comprises a nine-page PDF and Word document.
