If you stop to think about it, the breadth and scope of IT risk facing your organization are downright sickening. You’ve got global ransomware like WannaCry and NotPetya, which are growing more complex and sophisticated by the day. You’ve got botnets like Mirai, capable of bringing down an entire segment of the Internet.
You’ve got state-sponsored black hats, cyberterrorism, corporate espionage, communications site templates - it’s enough to make your head spin. There’s a good chance you’re already bolstering your security against these threats. You’re likely already hardening your infrastructure and training your staff.
Backing up your systems and data is an essential part of this approach - but unless you know how to protect those backups (live backups in particular), they are an imperfect defense, at best.
See, here’s the problem. Criminals (ransomware developers in particular) know that backups are one of the biggest threats to their craft. As such, they’re willing to go to great lengths to attack yours. They’ll design malicious software that infects your backups without you knowing, or else attack those backups directly.
Here’s what you can do to prevent that from happening:
Your data and systems are under constant threat from both internal and external bad actors. Backups are an essential element of protecting yourself. But unless you properly maintain and secure them, they are of little help. Follow the advice here, and you can ensure your data maintains its integrity and your systems stay operational through even the worst storm.
