Theme 4 Data Storage and Backup During the Project

This section contains the following questions:

  • Where will data be stored?
  • How will the data be backed up?
  • Is there sufficient storage & backup capacity during the project?
  • What are the expected costs for data storage & backup during the project? How will these costs be covered?
  • Data security: how will you ensure that the data are securely stored and not accessed or modified by unauthorised persons?

Make sure you have multiple copies in different places. If possible, have an automatic back-up system!
