Information LifeCycle Management (ILM) refers to the management of a set of software tools that are responsible for managing storage, access control, backup management, and in a general definition, the execution of processes that use that information. And will have available data available in the least cost-effective way and with the most optimal access. The use of such systems in medium and large organizations is a necessity due to the growth rate of information or the minimum high cost that is obtained due to the maintenance of high volume of information and it is necessary for all organizations to use such solutions at different levels.
We all know that the most important part of an organization is the “employees”, “data” and “systems” of that collection. Protecting data and systems is difficult due to their increasing growth in the organization and the complexity of its infrastructure. One of the major problems and major risks that most IT managers face is the risks of information destruction. There are many reasons for data loss, including bugs in software, viruses, accidental deletions, hard drive failures, or natural disasters such as fire, flood, and so on.
All companies and organizations have information assets that need to be protected and vital to business continuity need to have a high-level management process. This process includes many basic and standard solutions designed to manage the risks and threats that endanger an organization’s business. One of the dangers that threatens many organizations is the dangers and disasters that threaten to destroy their information. This situation is conceivable for any organization, small or large. For this purpose, every organization needs procedures and standards that can recover in the shortest possible time in cases of threats and when information is lost, and put the organization in its normal routine. This process should be such that it encompasses the security policies of that organization.
