The data backup process

An overview for saboteurs

Abstract

An extract from an imaginary textbook includes a discussion of data backup in libraries. Library administrators often do not consider the risks that prevail in high-tech environments. Saboteurs can destroy library data by various methods, such as causing a power outage or planting a virus in a library’s systems. Saboteurs can exploit weaknesses in a library’s systems management. High-quality off-site storage includes trained personnel and proper security measures.
