Data Protection and Backup

With constant technological upgrades and growing storage expenditure, ensuring proper storage and data management is expensive and time-consuming. As the amount of digital information a business creates increases, it is imperative that it has a strategic data management approach on hand.

5 Best Practices For Data Protection

Having official written copy of your data protection strategy. It should have well-documented and unambiguous specific policies as well as corrective methods for dealing with security flaws as they are discovered.

Fundamentally, most security problems are due to user error. Your network admins should be rigorously trained in proper data retention standards, and your workforce at large should be trained on handling of non-public information.

No one should have access to secure files unless they need it. The default should always be to block access when in doubt as to a user’s authenticity.

Security policies should be routinely tested and probed to verify their efficacy. All network activity needs to be logged, preferably including a read-only copy that even administrators cannot alter. Robust reporting will help you detect any potential intrusions early.

Moving your files onto secure servers offsite, such as through Cloud storage solutions, can ensure you have a reliable copy of your data to restore from or compare against if a security issue did arise.
