CHAPTER 14: Backup and Recovery > Planning for Backups

Planning for Backups

Most people reading this book will work in a department or group called Information Systems (IS) or Information Technology (IT), or they are preparing for a career in the field of IT. IT is the collection of technologies and resources used to manage information. Organizations place great value on their information, as they should, and they expect the IS or IT group to manage this information well. It is essential that those of us who work in IT remember that the “I” stands for information and our primary responsibility is the collection, retention, distribution, protection, and destruction of that information.

Information can be defined as meaningful data. Data, without context, is just a bunch of 1s and 0s in a computer system.
