What is “Data Isolation”?

Recently the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in the US, released a notification called “Shields Up”, warning companies to protect themselves from all possible threats to their data. This was due to the increase in ransomware attacks, that in addition to corrupting and stealing data, these attacks can take hundreds of resource hours to recover from.
Data Isolation is the solution to this problem, but how do you isolate your data and what does the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) say about it?


Data Isolation

The threat of ransomware and other cyberattacks places a unique focus on how organisations leverage their backup data. If a ransomware or other attack corrupts production data, organisations need to recover rapidly and accurately to support their 24×7 operational needs. Modern data isolation techniques include immutable snapshots, virtual air gaps, role-based access & multi-factor authentication. A legacy approach is insufficient for the modern era.
