11 11 To backup data means to make a copy of the data that can be used in case the primary data store is damaged or lost. The goal of developing data backup policies is to provide guidance to data curators about how data should be backed up and to identify roles and responsibilities of personnel for creating, maintaining and using backups ([[DataONE, 2011a>>||anchor="DataONEa"]]).

15 15 The backup policy should describe what data need to backed up and how frequently, where backups are kept and for how long, and who can access them ([[DataONE, 2011b>>||anchor="DataONEb"]]). The policy may also dictate the hardware and software to be used. If backups are not automatic, the policy should state who performs the backups. The policy should also state how and how often backups are validated and what metrics are used to evaluate backups.
