Data backup and file management
Data backup procedures, ensuring that both data and software are regularly and securely backed up, are essential to protect against the loss of that data and software. To facilitate a rapid recovery from an emergency, copies of any backups and any relevant documentation including software licences must be stored remotely.
Users should note that only critical College systems are routinely backed up by IS Services. The responsibility for backing up data held on individual computers, regardless of whether they are owned privately or by the College, falls entirely to the user of that computer. For full details see the College data backup and disaster recovery policy.
