Understanding 'Next-Gen' Backup & Restoration Processes
Following a ransomware attack, leaders at organizations with functional backups might expect to be up and running within a matter of minutes. In reality, this can be a lengthy process causing confusion and frustration. "Recoverability," then, must underpin much of the enterprise's wider security strategy.

Despite a surge in crypto-locking attacks, tools have emerged allowing teams to restore data in milliseconds. Other features now prohibit even those with admin rights from deleting files - without navigating a MFA-controlled process requiring authentication from several account holders. These advances prevent additional loss, boost resilience and can even root out insider threats. These are just some of the principles that comprise "next-gen" backup and restoration.

Join ISMG's Dan Gunderman for a moderated discussion that will draw from the experience of the attendees, offering insights on recoverability, communication with lines of business, and other elements of data recovery's "long tail."

Discussion topics will includes:

  • How confident are you in your existing recovery capabilities?
  • How would you describe the "gap" that exists between security and other business units - in terms of expectations for data restoration?
  • Has your recovery strategy shifted at all in the wake of ransomware incidents like Colonial Pipeline, or widespread security vulnerabilities like Log4j?
  • In your estimation, what is the next phase of backing up enterprise data and restoring it when the need arises? What can be done to streamline the process?


Joining Dan to provide expert insight and case studies is Andy Stone, CTO with Pure Storage.
