~4-page information security policy template on data backups.


Valuable data stored online on IT systems and networks (including cloud storage) must be backed up regularly to secure off-line storage.  Supporting standards and procedures are required to minimize the associated information risks.


Note: this is a policy elaborating on the purpose, principles and rules about backups in general, not a standard or specification stating exactly how each database, system or device is to be backed up.


Supplied as an MS Word document, readily customised for your organisation's specific situation.
