Averting Disaster: How to Automate Storage & Backup Compliance

When all else fails, your backups are your lifeline and your last defense against the effects of ransomware and outages. Ensuring your backups are secure is essential to building a resilient operation.

Storage and backup compliance reporting can save your organization from data loss, expensive fines, and reputational damage. According to NIST Special Publication 800-209: ‘Security Guidelines For Storage Infrastructure’, organizations are required to: “Periodically and proactively assess configuration compliance to storage security policy.”

However, creating monitoring policies and reports is often tedious and time-consuming. To ensure your storage and your backups are secure on an ongoing basis, you need to automate this process. But how?

What you’ll learn:

  • How to establish a security baseline for your storage and backups, and then validate configuration compliance
  • Automate the detection and remediation of security misconfigurations, and prove adherence with security regulations and standards
  • Apply stricter controls and more testing of storage & backup security, and your ability to recover from a ransomware attack
  • Develop KPIs to track the compliance to storage security baselines, based on types of data, their organization function, and their sensitivity.
