Re: Backups

Hi! My name is Louise Miller - a copywriter, a rewriter, an optimizer, a seller of services and goods through an effective advertising syllable, a delicate psychologist of purchasing souls who has many years of experience in business and trade.

In other words: I write texts! Clear and simple texts for websites, easily and with pleasure read (at least I try to make them exactly so). But this does not mean that I can not rewrite any scientific work. This is a unique content of information and advertising nature, written for people in an accessible and understandable language and simultaneously well perceived by search engines.

Re: Backups
I heard that SMB is by and large help by an oversaw benefits firm" That is valid, they predominantly deal with fundamental stuff and request progressively if greater security is required.

Re: Backups
They have to be catalog backups, every 24 hours and not to over-write old data otherwise the next cycle just backs up encrypted files from "now" instead of good files from "then."  I am proud that a 501C3 that got wrecked by Crypotlocker in 2014, under rmy care, had 98% of workstation and server data TOTALLY RESTORED within 3 hours the next business day.  I  maintained proper OFFSITE, CATALOG storage and it worked.

Re: Backups
Ever since i joined a malware forensics team in Georgia Agree. It is a good idea to be part of an organization that we can get constant current updates on the issues.

Re: Backups
My backups were good and tested That is good, unless backup is verified it is not that problem-proof. If current files are encrypted , backups might be encrypted too.

Re: Backups
SMB is generally support by a managed services firm That is true, they mainly take care of basic stuff and ask for more if more security is needed.

Re: Backups
This metrics is perfect to make a case towards a robust backup platform Agree. Backups is critical, they need to go beyond that and avoid any downtime,

Ransomware
Ransomware is a lucrative business today. There is no surprise that there will be more of it next two years. Businesses need to get ahead of it.

Re: Backups
SMB is generally support by a managed services firm or often a local self-employed consultant and I have looked at my past support protocols --- SHOCKED at some of them with what I have learned recently.  My backups were good and tested.  Whew.  But in other areas I stand in shame.  Your support entity HAS to be responsible for these issues and I now that should be a LEGAL requirement as well!!!

Ever since i joined a malware forensics team in Georgia, i am astonished some of my clients lasted as long as they did!!!
