Cloud Backup

Cloud backup is the process of backing up, storing, and recovering data to protect against disaster, malware, human error, and power outages. This process can be done internally or through a cloud services provider, however most cyber security experts agree that the best method of backup is the 3-2-1 rule. The rule states that 3 copies of data should be maintained in 2 independent storage mediums, with 1 copy housed offsite.
