BU.1.01 - Backup Configuration Control Guidance

BU.1.01 - Backup Configuration

Control Statement

GitLab configures redundant systems and performs data backups routinely as specificied by management to resume system operations in the event of a system failure.


We need to demonstrate that GitLab can be restored to a prior point in time in the event the data is corrupted, service interruption or other event that disrupts normal service. This helps ensure we have redundancy/backups enabled.


Regular Backups help ensure secure and clean data to keep the business running in case of data loss, or a natural disaster. Scope is to make sure, at Gitlab there is a regular backup process in place which is efficient and operational.



Assess and apply a clear backup and restore standard for all GitLab systems

The Backup configuration Documentation should include:
