Regular backups of all data, including data on file servers, infrastructure, and critical business applications should be performed. Keep in mind that these backups can also be affected by ransomware. Indeed, more and more cybercriminals seek to attack backups to limit the possibilities for the victim to find his data and thus maximize the chances that he pays the ransom. These backups, at least for the most critical, must be disconnected from the Information System to prevent their encryption, like other files. The use of “cold storage” solutions, such as external hard drives or magnetic Tapes, can protect backups from infection of systems and preserve critical data upon recovery. In this regard, it is important to note that “backup-less” architectures (snapshots) effectively protect against the destruction of isolated data, when it is due to a hardware failure. However, they do not protect against targeted ransomware attacks because the attackers work to encrypt data on all servers.
