Prior notes that none of it is foolproof. Antivirus software, firewalls, and even system updates can only protect from known threats; however, new threats are found every day. It's critically important to keep all systems patched and up to date with the latest security updates.
Cyber criminals don't give up, so the last line of defense are good backups and a disaster recovery plan.
In terms of backups, NSG recommends a plan that meets the following criteria:
1. Identifies all important data; ensures it is stored in approved places that are included in the backup folders
2. Business class backup software that can make full system images, perform incremental backups, offer encryption, and feature granular restore capability
3. Local backups are stored on a separate network storage device that only the backup software knows about
4. Off-site backups
6. IT support staff that are competent and have experience backing up and restoring customer systems and data
NSG handles all that and more. If you aren't 100% confident that you are fully protected, contact NSG. They will review your current plan come up with a plan to keep your data secure.
