How Safe Are Your Backups?
It may seem silly to wonder how safe your backups are; backups are rarely thought of as being at risk. It stems back to a time when backups were on tape—a medium that would be tough for even skilled developers to hack. But today’s backups are stored (whether on-premises or in the cloud) on disk or, more specifically, as files in a file system. Depending on how accessible that file system is, your backups may be vulnerable.
