What does the DfE say about backup?

With a wave of targeted cyber-attacks on schools, colleges, and MATs throughout 2021 and 2022, the Department for Education has issued guidance, aligned with that from the NCSC, on how schools can stay protected against ransomware.

It is vital that all education providers urgently review their existing defences and take the necessary steps to protect their networks from cyber-attacks. IT Teams or providers should confirm that:

  • They are backing up the right data
  • The backups are held offline
  • They have tested that they can restore services and recover data from the backups

What does the NCSC say about backup?

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has issued guidance for organisations on staying protected against cyber-threats such as ransomware, advising how a secure backup can enable recovery.

Amongst suggested layers of protection from the NCSC, and aligned with the requirements of cyber insurance companies, are ‘offline backups’, the ability to scan data to ensure recoveries are clean, and backups which are ‘immutable’ to ensure backups cannot be corrupted or deleted.

Redstor’s ransomware recovery solution enables you to recover all data and systems to a state before the ransomware infection took hold. This negates the effects of ransomware, avoids the need to pay a ransom and allows you to recover from an attack quickly and resiliently.
