The new year is a great time to review your data safety measures, including business critical data backups.
As suggested by US-CERT, for your backup strategy, think 3–2–1. . .
|3||Keep 3 copies of any important file: 1 primary and 2 backups.|
|2||Keep your backup files on 2 different media types to protect against different types of hazards.|
|1||Store 1 copy of your backup media offsite, outside your home or business facility.|
For further guidance, review the following articles that describe both DDI-specific and generally accepted best practices for your backup strategy.
