The best offense is a good defense when ensuring your data is protected. Adopting a resilient backup solution that integrates data protection and cybersecurity is the most foolproof method to defend the US public sector against such attacks and keep critical operating systems up and running. Performing regular full-image backups and storing them on-site and a secure off-site location are crucial steps to ensure your organization recovers quickly. In fact, several compliance frameworks like NIST 800-171, CMMC, and CJIS require that backups are protected, with offsite being the perfect option.
Cyberattacks are not the only way data is lost or corrupted. And it’s not just the loss of data; it’s the cost of downtime, database reconstruction, and, in the worst-case scenario, the impact on your ability to conduct business if the data is unrecoverable.
The US public sector must incorporate a Defense-in-Depth strategy, including the right backup solution that is highly secure, easy to manage, provides reliable replications, maintains compliance standards, and has zero impact on performance. Acronis SCS Cyber Protect is that solution and your organization’s best defense.
