The Different Scenarios How Backups are Vulnerable to Ransomware Attacks
Organizations need to ensure that their data backups aren’t tampered with by attackers, according to security firm Datto. In an article for Channel Futures, Datto explained that backups are an important layer of defense, but they aren’t foolproof. The firm also notes that, while encryption may keep your data private, it won’t prevent a ransomware attacker from simply putting another layer of encryption on top of it and locking you out. Additionally, if an attacker gains access to your internal accounts, they might be able to access the data unencrypted.
