Business Information and services are a vital part of any organization and should be protected. Simply saving information is not enough; performing backups of all application critical information within Breezy will help prevent business down time and/or loss of data and services. Without adequate backups, failure due to computer malfunction, human error, and natural disasters could cause unrecoverable interruptions.
The Breezy HR Information Backup Policy shall apply to all information assets, information systems and other resources provided by Breezy for the purpose of supporting the Applicant Tracking System from Breezy HR.
Backups of Breezy servers and data must be retained to the degree server operating systems and applications are fully recoverable with limited data or service level agreement loss. This may be achieved using a combination of snapshots, copies, incremental backups, differential backups, transaction logs, or other techniques. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Engineering Manager.
Information system owners must ensure adequate backup and system recovery procedures are in place to ensure recovery from loss of service level.
Management must ensure safeguards are in place to protect the integrity of data files during the recovery and restoration of data files; especially where such files may replace more recent ones.
Information stored on laptops or portable computers must be backed up regularly. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure backups occur on a regular basis.
Storage media used for the archiving of information must be appropriate to expected longevity. The format in which data is stored must be carefully considered, especially where proprietary formats are involved.
Backup - The procedure for making extra copies of information stored on disparate servers and computers in case the original is lost or damaged.
Restore - The process of returning to a former condition using a backup.
