Discussion

Search “scholar.google.com” for a company or school that has reported issues, problems, concerns about their backup procedures. Discuss the issue of securing backups. There have been several incidents lately in which backup media containing personal customer information were lost or stolen. How should backup media be secured? What about off-site storage of backups?

In any case, Acronis Backup is a professional PC backup solution that can best protect everyone data. Acronis Backup allows everyone to perform backups for all types of media and of course to restore backups quickly and efficiently. This backup software has advanced features that are well suited to business issues such as backup planning, the ability to backup multiple media (clouds, hard drives, NAS etc …), the backup of virtual machines (VMs) and physical , network backup, protection for the cloud and against ransomware. Everything is managed by a single web console that has a simple interface, clear and intuitive.
Here again, there are large variations between storage media with low data access times (SSD, Flash memory cards) and media types with long access times such as magnetic tapes. This support, which has the advantage of having a low cost, has a long access time ranging from a few minutes to several hours. If everyone need to restore everyone data quickly and everyone only have this support as a backup solution, it could be a problem. Power consumption is certainly not the primary criterion in the choice of a storage medium but the power consumption of everyone backup equipment is both an environmental and ecological issue not to be neglected and also a certain financial cost that can be important depending on the size of the IT infrastructure, mainly in the (large) business environment. Here is another criterion that will not necessarily interest the average user but that will interest the professional environment where confidentiality and data security are fundamental. Cryptography offers methods of data encryption that is particularly suited to the needs of businesses. Rahumed, A., Chen, H. C., Tang, Y., Lee, P. P., & Lui, J. C. (2011, September).

The following situation may sound familiar to some: accidentally we have deleted a very important file, of which unfortunately, we do not have any backup. The file has been permanently lost, which can certainly be annoying. However, this case can have serious implications when it is not only a small file, but a large volume of data, especially for large businesses and businesses. Therefore, both for the business sector and for private users, backing up are essential.
For many web projects it is necessary to access large databases with the help of different programming languages; to achieve, for example, the correct visualization of a web page. The loss of information in a database can lead to unpleasant consequences; they can present falls of the web page, incorrect visualizations of the contents, bad operation of the applications, and in the worst case, the information of the clients can disappear completely. This type of case can trigger an extra workload, because surely you will have to deal with dissatisfied clients and in the future, work again to recover your trust (Straub, D. W., & Welke, R. J. (1998)).
The most common cause of data loss is not attributed to external attacks. On the contrary, it is usually the result of an internal technical failure or simply a user error. Therefore, even the most powerful security software cannot protect or reverse the loss of information; the only things that can prevent it are backup copies (Keeney, M., Kowalski, E., Cappelli, D., Moore, A., Shimeall, T., & Rogers, S. (2005)).
To avoid a total loss of our information, it is necessary to make backup copies on external storage media. In these copies, also known as backups, the information remains intact until the moment in which new files are saved.
