Layer 1 - Data Protection
More About Level 1- Data Protection
Let’s discuss Layer 1, which is data protection. The first part of data protection is identifying important data that you must backup. Where is this data? Why is it important? How are you going to protect it?
Once your data is backed up and you can recover it, you must ensure your data integrity, or the accuracy and completeness of the data. Does the stored data look exactly like the original data? Next, how do you make sure that no one gets access to this data?
What data would someone else want, and why would it be important to them? To protect your data, we recommend Microsoft One Drive or Apple’s backup. We don’t like most of the free solutions out there. We prefer people move toward enterprise or commercial grade backups and make sure their data is encrypted.
If your data is not secure, you will be very, very vulnerable. Data security is a way to protect your secrets. Once your data is secure, you can focus on securing your technology.
