A backup retention policy is an internal organizational guideline that specifies what data the organization retains, where it is retained and for how long. Retention rules are important for several reasons, mainly in order to keep customer or client data safe and easily available. Retention policies may vary according to the specific demands and needs of the sector involved - healthcare, education, IT and retail. Some retention policies could additionally specify when particular pieces of data must be deleted.
