How to protect your enterprise’s storage resources against a cyber attack? Easy: internalize a security mindset. What does that mean? It means you must combine the twin principles of Zero Trust and Least Privilege. Together, these principles represent the best practices framework from which to create a comprehensive strategy to prevent data theft.
How Do You Backup Your Data?
Breaches and cyberattacks tend to be focused on demands for ransom, which is another way of saying that they’re reminders to:
- Completely separate backup data from primary or production data
- Make backups read-only
- Seriously consider a multi-site strategy
The Biggest Data Security Mistake Organizations Make
Lock down the network from bad actors all you want, but if you blindly trust the inside of your network, you are setting yourself up for a big fall. You need to rethink the presumption that everything nefarious occurs outside that barrier.
While perceived threats and vulnerabilities exist in the wider world, truly effective security policies assume nothing. The conventional wisdom once held that everyone inside the network was trusted and everyone outside was not, but this is not the truth today. Forrester Research found that “80 percent of data breaches are initiated using privileged credentials, and 66 percent of organizations still rely on manual methods to manage privileged accounts.”
