Backups and security
At some point in time, you are going to need to recover some data. Do you have a backup? Does your IT perform routine backups AND test to make sure they can RESTORE the data? Keeping backups in a safe place is not good enough. You need to make sure that ONLY those authorized to access the data and restore it – can do so. By encrypting your backup data, you take an extra step in protecting your valuable data from bad actors.
