Ssd Back-up Retrieval Procedure

The purpose of this procedure is to safeguard all the important/working files and databases at IRRI SSD/GIS Workstations and laptops. This is also vital to SSD’s Identified Risks (464-220-SSD) Loss of Research data in compliance with IRRI’s Business Continuity Management (BCM). To the event that a data was loss a quick recovery plan is in place.
