Backing up data securely off site


#1

Hello

I am working my way through the standards at https://www.societyofvirtualassistants.co.uk/2020/10/23/the-approved-virtual-assistant-scheme
and would like some information about backing up data securely off site.

Who do people use for this service and is it is something I have to pay for?

Thank you

Toni

Hi Toni, I’m new here but I believe backing up to the cloud is considered off-site. So the likes of Dropbox, OneDrive, Box etc.

I’m sure others will correct me if i’m wrong!

I use One Drive but my IT Support company also provide an additional backup service for a very low cost.

Hi Toni

I have Google Drive through Google Workspace, (formerly G Suite) and OneDrive through Microsoft. However, I also use Backblaze which was recommended to me by an IT contact to back up my pc.

Hi Izzy,

I use Google Drive and One Drive, and then a removable hard drive that is encrypted.
