1.007 - Members of the Backup Operators group must have separate accounts for backup duties and normal operational tasks.


Backup Operators are able to read and write to any file in the system, regardless of the rights assigned to it. Backup and restore rights permit users to circumvent the file access restrictions present on NTFS disk drives for the purpose of backup and restore. Members of the Backup Operators group must have separate logon accounts for performing backup duties.


Ensure that each member has separate accounts for user tasks and for backup operator functions. Create the necessary documentation that identifies the members of the Backup Operators group.
