Information security in general practice
This process allows ongoing backup to a storage medium that is always connected to the internet. The term ‘cloud’ refers to the backup storage facility being accessible from the internet.
Cloud backup is different to online backup in that the data can be accessed securely from any other computer with an internet connection.
This involves any backup where the storage medium is kept close at hand. Typically, the storage medium is plugged directly into the computer that is being backed-up.
This is where the backup storage medium is kept at a different geographic location from the source. The backup is initially completed locally on the usual storage devices. The storage medium becomes an offsite backup once it is taken to another location.
This is a storage medium that is always connected via the internet and is usually located offsite.
