Black Box, Backup, Network Backup System, Mirroring, RAID
Modern organizations from different sizes (Small, , Medium and Large) consider information as one of the most important of their assets that need to be secured against increasing number of threats. The importance of the information comes from its impacts on the main tasks performed by the organization. The evolution of Information Technology and Information Systems is changing permanently the characteristics and the components of such systems and the ways needed to protect them against any security risk. Periodic data backup is a system administration task that has changed as new technologies have altered the fundamental structure of networks. These changes encourage rethinking of modern backup strategies and techniques. In addition, standard backup programs and specialized tools are often needed. This paper provides an overview of issues to be considered for a long term, stable and secure backup system. A new approach (Hardware) called Black Box backup system is proposed based on current risk management plans and procedures used mainly in the aerospace industry.
