Backups should be validated on a regular basis.


Verifying that backups are occurring appropriately will help ensure data availability in the event of an incident. Without a well-tested backup, it might be hard to recover from an incident if the backup procedure contains errors or doesn't include all required data.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Implement regular backup checks and document each check.
