Managing Backups as Code – Configuring IAM roles in Veeam Backup for AWS with AWS CloudFormation and Lambda

One of the cornerstones of Amazon Web Services (AWS) best practices is using multiple accounts to manage your workloads. Dedicating accounts to specific business units or even specific applications provides numerous benefits that increase agility, improve security and streamline operations. This practice also helps operators follow the principle of least privilege, whereby only a minimal set of privileges required to perform a task are assigned to responsible users and services, and ideally, only for the time required to complete the task.

How to Recover Quickly from a Ransomware Attack

Ransomware attacks need to be viewed under the same category as power outages and natural disasters. The requirement to recover quickly is a necessity. Recently, I'm seeing many vendors in the data protection industry advertise immutability and ransomware detection features. Both of which should absolutely be part of a company's ransomware strategy, but an immutable copy coming from spinning disk or tape can result in too much downtime for the business. It's an easy decision for a CEO or CFO if an attacker's ransom is $100,000 and the cost of downtime for a day is $500,000.

It’s designed to help you — and anyone close to this technology — understand exactly what Microsoft is responsible for and what responsibility falls on the business itself. After all — it is YOUR data!

How to Scan Backups for Ransomware

Protect, Detect and Recover! The three key pillars a backup vendor is expected to offer when it comes to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The top priority on that list is protecting your data. A secure backup both on premises and in a private or public cloud offers immense protection. This can protect data from both a hacker accessing the backup server as well as the backup repository. Secondly, the ability to recovery quickly is crucial. Read more
