Is your backup infrastructure really safe against cybercrimes?
We are talking about cybercrime, a global industry bigger than illegal drug trafficking. That being said, you can be quite sure that your backup infrastructure will be under attack in the future if it’s not already. The backup infrastructure is a primary target for attack because all relevant environment data is stored in that one single place. Second, if an attacker wants to destroy data, the backup environment is a good starting point because the backup server has access to pretty much every other important system, such as virtualization platform or storage systems.
