Much of the blame for the spread of ransomware attacks is placed on computers running older operating systems. After ransomware has encrypted your information, many organizations try to restore files from a backup, only to discover the backup was not usable. What can you do to prevent this from happening to your organization? Join this session to hear how the latest operating systems and database software include excellent internal controls that can be activated to thwart malicious attacks and loss of data availability and how SQL database file backups can be tested to ensure the backup is entirely readable and usable.
