Presentation Proper
 the process of creating and storing copies of data that
can be used to protect organizations against data loss.
 Recovery from a backup typically involves restoring the
data to the original location, or to an alternate location
where it can be used in place of the lost or damaged
 A proper backup copy is stored in a separate system or
medium (such as tape), from the primary data to protect
against the possibility of data loss due to primary
hardware or software failure.
Factors that can corrupt and
destroy data:
 External hackers
 Disgruntled employees
 Disk failure
 Program errors
 Fires
 Floods
 Earthquakes
How to recover from such
 The organization needs to reconstruct the
database to prefailure status. Only if the
database was properly backed up
 Organizations must, therefore, implement
policies, procedures, and techniques that
systematically and routinely provide backup
copies of critical data
Four Backup and Recovery
Database Backup
 The backup feature makes a periodic backup of the entire
 Should be a routine activity.
Transaction Log (journal)
 the transaction log feature provides an audit trail of all
processed transactions
Checkpoint Feature
 the checkpoint feature suspends all data processing while
the system reconciles the transaction log and the
database change log against the database.
Recovery Module
 the recovery module uses the logs and backup files to
restart the system after a failure.
Audit Objectives Relating to
Database Backup
 To verify that database backup controls are
adequate to facilitate the recovery of lost,
destroyed, or corrupted data.
Audit Procedures for Testing
Backup Controls
 The auditor should verify from system
documentation that production databases
are copied at regular intervals (perhaps
several times an hour).
 The auditor should verify through
documentation and observation that backup
copies of the database are stored off-site to
support disaster recovery procedures.
Importance of Backup and
 Backup copies allow data to be restored from
an earlier point in time to help the business
recover from an unplanned event.
 Storing the copy of the data on separate
medium is critical to protect against primary
data loss or corruption.

solutions that enable customers to offer private cloud
backup services to their clients without giving up their

customers because of its user-friendly interface, it could not
back up different types of devices, environments, and
operating systems. Customers need a way to protect not

but also PC/Mac® workstations, laptops, iOS®/Android®
mobile devices, Azure®/Amazon® Web Services (AWS)
cloud workloads, and even cloud services like Office 365®.
