Providing and “Air-Gap” for your backup storage is a simple procedure. All you do is physically isolate the medium/device from your network and internet access. Unplugging your network cable, or removing the media from the device is a simple procedure that gives you incredible protection from ransomware and other exploits.
In the next 3 months, as you plan your upgrades from Windows 7 and Server 2008, take a little extra time to make and test backups of all your data and system images.
Testing is a key aspect many do not take the time to implement. Accessing your backed-up data and extracting test files does not take that much time. The assurance from this simple process will give you confidence in your storage and methods.
Remedium Systems can help your business with all of these tasks. We can help you plan and execute your backups. We can help you test and verify those backups. And we can help you diversify the media and locations you use to store your backups. (Surprisingly, tape still has a place in businesses and backups.)
