Are your data backup systems secure?

My most recent article “Are your Backup Systems Secure?” has been published at the InfoSec Institute’s InfoSec Resources site.

In this article, I approach data security and the integrity of data backup systems from a whole systems perspective. I show you how you can, in your own systems, look at different vectors of data storage and the relationship we have with data from different points of view. You’ll also find a feedback loop illustration of one way to approach data lifecycle management as well as:

  • Factors to consider before you move to a tapeless data backup system
  • Encryption challenges and opportunities-related to keeping your off-site data secure
  • Approaches for backup tape reduction and legacy storage technology elimination
