Steps for Keeping Backup
Data Safe from Ransomware

Backing up data regularly is one of the most important things you can do to protect against a ransomware attack.

But that’s true only so long as your backup data itself is kept safe from ransomware. If attackers manage to compromise your backups, too, they can render the data unusable for recovery purposes. As a result, you will find yourself in most cases with no option other than to pay the ransom if you want to restore operations.

Learn how to keep your data safe from ransomware.
