Modern Data Protection in the Age of Ransomware

A Platform For Collaboration

OpenGov Asia is pleased to bring an exclusive Virtual Breakfast Insight to aims to provide the latest information on priortising data backup to defend against ransomware threats whilst ensure compliance and critical data avalibility.

Building a future proof architecture to deliver on data recovery and compliance needs whilst overcoming ransomware protection challenges

Efficient data protection strategies are essential to deal with the vast amounts of data being produced, and now, even more abundantly in the COVID- 19 era. Backups shield critical data against challenges like Ransomware, which turned out to be the one that capitalised on the crisis most. 

In this increasingly VUCA environment, organisations should be covered 24/7, year-round. Organisations need systems that offer multi-protocol support for the vast amount of data and that can deliver results at an unprecedented speed. Not only should a platform be fully customisable and easy to deploy, but users must be able to expand and upgrade it without disruption. It should have the capability to protect backup data and backup metadata by creating a secure copy, that ransomware cannot eradicate, modify or encrypt even with admin credentials. From snapshots to mirroring, there are a plethora of ways for a business to meet its Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). 

As organisations embark on developing modern applications, utilising a fully integrated solution for persistent storage, data protection, disaster recovery, data security, cross cloud and data migrations, and automated capacity management for applications running on Kubernetes is strongly recommended. A viable data backup plan leverages the agility and innovation of disruptive apps, delivering seamless results across multiple platforms without comprimsing data protection and response times. 

OpenGovLive! Virtual Breakfast Insight are concise, to the point, strategic level discussions designed to bring learning within a short span of 90 minutes! The unique proposition of this OpenGov Breakfast Insight is the integration of cutting-edge insights from our expert speakers and interactive discussion among the participants. 

We will be discussing : 

  • Developing a data strategy with security and recovery performance in mind, to avoid system down time 
  • Preventing the devastating effects of cyberattacks through efficient data backups that could reduce productivity, cost millions, threaten mission-critical work or interrupt essential citizen/ customer services 
  • Overcoming the challenges of failed backups, corrupted data and slow restoration 
  • Providing cloud native storage for modern applications running in the cloud, on-prem, and in hybrid/multi-cloud environments 
  • Meeting stringent SLAs with significantly improved performance and reduced complexity and cost 
  • Keeping operating systems and technology stacks up to date to stay ahead of known exploits and vulnerabilities
