We have been keeping our tapes onsite or someone takes them home, why would I need to change this system and move to off-site storage?
There are a number of risks to your business by doing this. Firstly if for whatever reason you could not gain access to your site, you will not be able to instigate your DR plans.
Secondly if someone loses the tapes on the way home or their home is broken into, youÂ may lose all the data compromising your entire business.
Lastly you are putting the responsibility of managing your mission critical data to your staff; is that fair to them?
