Have you reviewed your backup?

In light of current gobal events we are expecting to see an increase in the number of cyber threats and attacks. Modern cyber-attacks are known to destroy data and pose a concern to businesses of all types. It is our recommendation that you carry out a review of your backup to ensure that, should the worst happen, your business could continue.

This article marks the first of our IT security series, and over the coming weeks we’ll be sharing information on how your IT security can be improved through protection, detection, and access management.

However, the most important thing is protecting your data.

Whilst you can implement tools and best practices to minimise threats, and there are many that we will recommend, there is unfortunately no method to eradicate threats entirely. And whilst we are anticipating a rise in the number of cyber-attacks, your business data is also vulnerable to any number of other threats. Accidental loss, corruption or a natural disaster can be just as devastating to your business as a ransomware attack.

We advise that you download and work through our backup & DR checklist to make sure your backup and disaster recovery strategies are up to date and relevant. 

Backup & DR Review Checklist

  • Is the backup working?
  • Is the backup data what you expect?
  • Can your critical services be recovered quickly and effectively?
  • Is your recovery point objective (RPO) as expected?
  • Do you have the right RTO (Recovery Time Objective) set?
  • Does your backup environment have different credentials to your main network?
  • Is your offsite backup safe?
  • Is your cloud data being backed up?
  • Do you have a planned disaster recovery environment?
  • Do you carry out restoration tests?
  • Do you have a disaster recovery plan or strategy?
  • Do you have a business continuity plan?
