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.


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.
