Follow the 3-2-1 Rule to Defend Your Business from Ransomware

To get started with your data protection and disaster recovery plan, we encourage you to adopt the 3-2-1 rule:


Have at least three copies of your data: the original and two backups

Multiple copies ensure redundancy and increase the chances of recovering from an attack swiftly.


Utilize at least two types of media to store your data copies

For example, combine a local backup device with secure cloud backup services. This multi-tiered approach enhances your protection against data loss.


Keep at least one backup offsite, away from your primary business location

This step prevents the complete loss of data in case of a physical disaster, such as fire, flood, or theft.
