On the occasion of the World Backup Daythe world day created to remember the strategic importance of data backup, Innovery launches some important and useful tips. Let’s find out all the details about and about it together!
World Backup Day – Innovery tips
Data protection is increasingly important and not to be underestimated. Innovery, an Italian multinational active in the cybersecurity sector, has launched three important and fundamental warnings for obtaining a safe backup. Let’s see them!
The first step concerns solid encryption. Backup copies must be secure and separate from the corporate infrastructure, so if the security of the corporate perimeter were compromised, it would still be impossible for the criminal to access the backup data.
The 3-2-1 rule
Let’s now move on to the 3-2-1 rule. Having 3 backup copies statistically minimizes the risk of losing business-critical data, each of which should be saved in different environments. It is also necessary to use 2 different media, from external hard drives to, flash and tape memories up to the cloud. Finally, 1 of the backups should then always reside outside the office or on premise environment. One of the most common mistakes is not having an offsite copy of the data, which protects against catastrophic events affecting the operating site.
Finally, it is essential to carry out periodic recovery tests to verify the consistency of the backups. It often happens that when you try to restore your backup it doesn’t work and your data remains unreadable.
In recent years, it has been found that cyber attacks are on the rise. According to what was reported by the Cybersecurity & Data Protection Observatory of the Politecnico di Milano, in 2021 there was an increase of 15% compared to 2020. This data obviously had important consequences and therefore it is important to take action before the damage is irreversible . In fact, 31% of large Italian companies have prepared an IT resilience plan and believe it is essential to protect business continuity.
