There are huge security holes due to poor backup policies

Many companies and business organisations just leave themselves exposed to data loss because of their poor backup policies. In spite of the huge publicity that surrounds data breaches, many businesses, organisations and companies ignore the fundamental points of attack in the entire data backup process.

Many of the businesses and companies ignore the backup process, and consider it as a feared part of business. Backup is one of the most important aspects of any company.

The majority of backups are usually performed with root access and gives complete control to the user. In case of any error or malicious actions, there is no chance of detection.

Usually, default settings like logins and passwords are never changed even when users are prompted to do so, making it very easy for people with malicious intent to take advantage of the situation. It is really shocking to see people talking and worrying about data loss but leaving the backdoor open. Many backup systems allow its users to run the scripts on any system. This can lead someone who is in the privileged position to steal the company’s valuable data and create havoc for the entire business. Business organisations should stop ignoring data backup and should bring in proper auditing, user policies and proper password management.

New technologies like online backup and online data storage also help prevent many data loss problems.
