Safe Data Storage

As the amount of data continues to grow exponentially, safeguarding digital assets becomes more important. Secure data storage is the way businesses can protect themselves from costly ransomware attacks as well as other cyber threats that could compromise the security of their precious information. This article explains how to secure information, regardless of whether it’s stored on hard drives, USBs or online via cloud storage solutions.

Backups are an essential component of a safe data storage system. A secondary copy of a file will ensure that, in the event of malfunctioning device, theft or fire, you still have a backup. This isn’t enough to protect against all threats.

To make sure that backups are safe, storage administrators should follow some key guidelines:

Encryption — all sensitive data at rest and in motion should be secured. This will ensure that no one will be able to access the data without the encryption keys. They should be stored in a separate place and updated regularly.

Anomaly detection -A robust security system for your network must be in place to recognize and take action on any unusual behavior that could suggest that an attack could be taking place. This is the best way to identify hackers who are in the act, and prevent them from stealing data from storage systems.

Immutable storage is recommended to have multiple copies, with the first copy being unchangeable. This is similar to a time capsule that saves your information exactly as it was at the moment of saving.
