Mastering Risk Management: Episode 54 - W. Curtis Preston

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing W. Curtis Preston, AKA Mr. Backup, as a guest of the Mastering Risk Management Podcast​.

Curtis is an expert in backup & recovery systems; a space he has been working in since 1993. He has written four books on the subject and is the Chief Technical Evangelist at Druva, a SaaS platform that brings the security of the public cloud to data protection. He is the host of the Restore it All Podcast, and the founder and webmaster of, a website dedicated to backup and recovery. In our discussion, Mr. Backup and I had a broad ranging conversation including:

  • The many intricacies of data backup, disaster recovery, and long-term storage.

  • Using a SaaS service for data protection and resilience.

  • The production of the Restore It All Podcast and how it can aid listeners seeking assurance on their backup and recovery activities.
