Combat Data Breaches with Proactive Resilience

Cyber Resiliency & Ransomware September 18, 2023

Data breaches have become an unfortunate reality. They test your organization's resilience and ability to respond effectively. And their aftermath can be a challenging and daunting experience. 

Develop and follow a strategic and well-coordinated recovery plan so you can mitigate the impact of a breach. That means rebuilding stakeholder trust and emerging more prepared for future challenges. 

Empower your organization to defend against data breaches and reduce the attack surface. Here are five things you can do.

Focus on Data Restoration and Recovery from Data Breaches

A robust backup and recovery solution can significantly expedite data restoration. Implement data recovery plans and prioritize critical systems to minimize downtime and support swift restoration of normal operations. 

How We Help: Veritas Alta™ Data Protection and NetBackup enable you to restore data quickly and effectively after a data breach. 

Reevaluate and Strengthen Security Measures

  • A data breach highlights the urgency of safeguarding your digital assets. If you do get hit, use the opportunity to re-assess security protocols and identify new vulnerabilities. For instance:
  • Implement stronger security to maximize your protection, from multi-factor authentication to encryption and intrusion-detection systems
  • Enlist the help of autonomous data management for more visibility 
  • Leverage monitoring tools to track data activity
  • Utilize AI for anomaly and malware detection

How We Help: NetBackup appliance solutions and Backup Exec for small and medium business can protect and secure your data.

Address Legal and Regulatory Compliance

As you grapple with the complexities of data security, it's essential to adopt a disciplined approach to information governance. Establishing a strong platform helps mitigate risk while maximizing business value. For instance, make sure you can generate audit reports and validate data-retention and deletion processes. Backup and archiving solutions help you retrieve historical data for analysis. 

How We Help: Anticipate and mitigate risk with our data compliance and governance portfolio. Rely on our expertise to stay ahead of regulatory standards such as GDPR and CCPA.

Deploy Continuous Monitoring and Optimization

Recovering from a data breach is an ongoing process, not an isolated incident. Arm yourself and maintain vigilance with continuous monitoring and threat detection. These solutions allow you to identify and respond to suspicious activity in an instant. Fortify your defenses, safeguard your data, and ensure your resilience in the face of cyber adversity. 

How We Help: Improve visibility into your data with Veritas Data Insight and Veritas IT Analytics.

Prioritize Resilience and Business Continuity

It’s invaluable to have a strategy in place to both prevent and recover from a data breach. Quick and effective data recovery reduces downtime to a minimum. The faster you recover, the sooner you can resume normal operations and avoid financial loss. 

How We Help: InfoScale offers a single solution for availability across your IT infrastructure that keeps you highly resiliency and helps you maintain uptime. NetBackup Resiliency Platform is now built-in and an intrinsic disaster recovery that is available on updated versions of Veritas Alta™ Data Protection and NetBackup.

With the right approach and mindset, you can turn a data breach into a steppingstone toward a more secure and resilient future.
