Hierarchy of Needs in Data Protection

In support of World Backup Day 2020, here is a relatively short (12m) video on the Hierarchy of Needs in Data Protection.  For those familiar with the original psychology, Maslow’s Pyramid of Needs described that until you’ve met the foundational elements of food, water, shelter (layer one), you couldn’t really feel safe (layer two), have authentic relationships, etc.  I’d propose that until you’ve assured yourself of reliable recoverability of data, everything else is not only aspirational, but likely unattainable.

Enjoy the video – and please let me know what you think.
