We hope we’ve already convinced you that backups are a key defense against ransomware. But your backups need to be protected against infection too, or they’ll be worse than worthless. Here are some recommendations for keeping your backups safe:
|1.||Understand the backup policies of any online file sharing services you use.|
|2.||Monitor your backup process metrics daily for suspicious activity (for example, the inability to compress or deduplicate files.)|
|3.||Keep your backups separate from your normal operating environment so ransomware can’t access and compromise them.|
|4.||Back up your most business-critical data hourly or daily and test your ability to restore from it regularly.|
