Safe Data Storage

As the amount of data continues to grow exponentially, safeguarding digital assets becomes increasingly important. Safe data storage is how companies can stay away from expensive ransomware attacks and other cyber threats that could compromise the integrity of their valuable information. This article explains how to protect data regardless of whether it’s stored on hard drives or USBs or even online in cloud storage solutions.

Backups are an essential component of any secure storage system for data. A backup copy of a data file will ensure that in the event of a hardware failure, theft or fire, you still have a copy. This is not enough protection against all threats.

Storage administrators must adhere to a few fundamental guidelines to ensure that backups are safe.

Encryption All sensitive data in motion and in motion should be secured. This ensures that no one will be able to access the data without the encryption keys, which should be kept in a separate place and regularly updated.

Anomaly detection – a strong security system for your network should be in place. It should detect and act on any unusual behavior that could signal that an attack is taking place. This is often a great method to stop attackers in the act and prevent them from stealing data from storage systems.

Immutable storage — it’s best to have multiple copies of the same file and the main copy should be unchangeable. This is a kind of time capsule for your data, which keeps the exact state it was when it was saved.
