Assignment 1: Backup Strategies

This discussion assignment will provide you an insight into the importance of backup strategies. As we know, having a backup plan is important to ensure the safety and security of information.

Tasks:

Using the Argosy University online library resources, scholarly or professional resources, your course textbook, and the Internet, research on backup and recovery.

Based on your research, create a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document, providing the following:

  • A summary of the backup strategies that can be used for daily backups to restore and recover files.
  • Name of an organization that would benefit from such a backup system and determination of the best backup for this industry.

Note: Your response should rely upon at least two sources from professional literature—articles from peer-reviewed journals and relevant textbooks. Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA); and use accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
