Relationships
Broader Term: 

n. ~ A reproduction of a record created and managed to preserve the information in case the original is damaged.

Notes: 

Security copies are typically stored off site. They are distinguished from backups in that security copies typically include only vital (essential) records. A backup may be used as a security copy if it is created and stored in a manner that allows retrieval of a complete set of vital records.
