Safe Data Storage

By | Juni 7, 2024

As the amount of data continues to increase exponentially, protecting digital assets becomes more important. Secure data storage is one way organizations can avoid costly ransomware attacks and other cyber threats that could compromise the security of their precious information. This article will help you keep data secure, whether it’s physically stored on hard drives or USBs, or virtually online in cloud storage solutions.

Backups are a crucial part of any safe storage system for data. A secondary copy of a file will ensure that, in the event of a failure in the hardware, theft or fire, you still have a copy. However, this isn’t enough to be able to defend against all dangers.

To make sure that backups are actually secure, storage administrators should follow a few key practices:

Encryption All sensitive data that is in transit and in motion must be encrypted. This will ensure that no one can access the data without the encryption keys. These keys should be kept at a separate location, and regularly updated.

Anomaly detection – a robust security system for the network should be in place. It should be able to detect and take action on any unusual behavior that could indicate that an attack may be in progress. This is often a good way to catch attackers who are in the act and prevent them from taking data from storage systems.

Immutable storage – it’s recommended to have multiple copies, with the primary copy being immutable. This is like a time capsule that saves your information exactly as it was at the time of saving.
