How trustworthy are your back-ups?
Having a back-up system in place provides businesses with a great sense of resiliency even though it isn’t an actual guarantee that you will recover all of your data after an incident (cyber or not).
To determine how secure your back-ups truly are, you need to ask yourself a few questions:
- Did you define a back-up and recovery strategy?
- What tier-level does your data and your business require for hosting?
- Are you frequently testing your back-ups?
- Do they follow the magic “3-2-1" rule?
- Do you have an air-gap back-up making sure one copy is immutable?
- Are they protected against unwanted intrusions such as malware, ransomware?
- Are they compliant with GDPR?
In the case of a business disruption, your back-ups are crucial to get your operations up and running again. They play a pivotal role in your recovery strategy, so you need to ensure they are secure and readily available when the time comes.
Why now more than ever?
With a constant rise in ransomware attacks, the risk that your back-ups could be compromised and no longer able to be fully restored is growing. Are you sure that no unwanted intrusion is weakening your back-ups?
Businesses often outsource their back-up needs to a trusted external provider and no longer feel concerned about the security of their data. However, it is your organisation’s responsibility to keep your data secure; you need to be aware of how your information is treated, what the SLAs are, what tier their datacentres are, …
