As the volume of data is growing exponentially, protecting digital assets becomes more crucial. Secure data storage is one way organizations can avoid costly ransomware attacks, as well as other cyber threats that could compromise the integrity of their valuable information. This article explains how to keep data secure whether it’s stored physically on hard drives or USBs or stored online in cloud storage solutions.

Backups are an essential component of a safe data storage system. Making a second copy of any file ensures that if the file is lost due to a hardware malfunction such as theft, a burglary or a fire there will be another copy available. This isn’t enough to protect against all threats.

Storage administrators must adhere to a few key practices to ensure backups are safe.

Encryption — all sensitive data at rest and in motion should be secured. This will ensure that no one can access the data without encryption keys. These keys should be kept in a separate area and regularly updated.

Anomaly detection — a strong security system for your network must be in place to recognize and respond to any unusual behavior that may suggest that an attack could be in progress. This is often a great method to catch attackers in the act and prevent them from stealing data from storage systems.

Immutable storage – it’s best to have multiple copies, with the primary copy being unchangeable. This is a kind of time capsule that keeps your data exactly as it was at the time of saving.
