Recommend Security procedures, backup strategy and one online backup service with justificationsRecommended Security Measures

Without security procedures any technology in any organization or company will suffer from different types attacks that will damage the system which result in destroying vast majority of data and information. By focusing on this, there must be taken some security steps to prevent that phenomenon. Firstly, we have to acquire Norton Security for the Internet due to some reasons which are justified in the following: Norton Internet Security 2012 - 1 User 3PC Product Description with justifications:

Insight and SONAR 4 Behavioral Protection has been improved which will give a concrete multiple layered level of protection to the company Network Threat Protection has been enhanced to provide more secure, it is beneficial for cinemas networking to be stayed secure well. Moreover, it keeps secure the cinemas internet browser and its system security.

5.2 Back up strategy & 5.3 Online backup service R Backup Online Backup Software Both strategy and service will do by using this software. It works as usual data backup software, but it has a necessary uniqueness. It is backing up instead of transmitting backups to a tape drive, it sends all the backups via the Internet or other networking to Mega cinemas online backup server securely offsite and its done at the night time when computers are not used. Furthermore, its totally automatic and Mega cinema can put its lives on the line every night.

Online Backups will be done on agenda, consistently and remote backups are done with automated software regularly at night. Merely, the truthful files are backed up and they normally illustrate the state of the system. Thus, it solves that problem by continuously

reevaluating the computer system. Only, it has version control system which is easy to use. Moreover, all backups encrypted for total protection, but in general tape back ups are not encrypted, so anyone can get access to everything else on computers. Yet, it encrypts its back up which will secure for anyone even for RBS service provider. Therefore, all backups are instantly sent offset and kept securely away from the clients computers and their businesses. There might be a problem by doing that mentioned criteria above and in order to solve that it automatically keeps all important data at more than one site. In that case, Mega cinema can be backup and open the new computers for the newest data no matter what occurs.

It runs on all versions of Windows 7, 2003 and 2008 Servers and newer and holds up all networks that run with these operating systems.

We will show how backup system works: It divides into two modules a client and a server. The client is computerized and stores track of data and hides on the System Tray, similarly, server controls the same way. Since, all files back up; they packed together and encrypted which makes active clients Internet connection. Consequently, it makes a connection with companys Remote Backup Server and transmits it back. Lastly, backup is confirmed for integrity before transmitting and this makes sure that copy of the back up in the companys Server precisely equal to that copy that was sent. VI.
