Frequency of Back Ups...Incremental and Full

  • 1.  Frequency of Back Ups...Incremental and Full

    A recent online discussion included the topic of how frequently organizations do back ups, either incremental or full.  The context of the question was the frequency of back ups as a means to minimize the impact of a ransomware attack.

    To compare and contrast (C&C)...most folks offered that they do incremental back ups twice a day, about 12 hours apart...example...3 AM and 3 PM and do a full system back up once a week...with Sunday being the most common day of choice.

    Looking to see how others are scheduling their back ups.  Thanks!
