11.6. Data backups are to be executed to ensure data is available and useful when needed. Members responsible for CAP-owned IT assets and/or field developed systems must perform full backups no less than once a month and incremental backups weekly to protect against possible loss of information due to fire, natural or man-made disaster, or storage device failure. Back-up electronic files should be stored in another physical location (different building) so that a single catastrophic event is not likely to damage/destroy both the primary and back-up records. Members holding CAP data on their personally-owned devices are encouraged to backup any critical data and must safeguard data, wherever it resides, in accordance with this regulation.
