Frequently Asked Questions
- What should a backup and recovery plan include for the manufacturing industry?A cyber protection plan for the manufacturing industry should ensure the protection and availability of critical data and systems against a variety of potential downtime causes, including hardware failure, software issues, human errors, natural disasters, and cyberattacks. The key elements include:
• Rapid OT server restoral to prevent costly factory-floor outages. High-performance Acronis OT server protection is trusted by many OT application vendors.
• Data backup involves regular creation and storage of copies of critical data on-site and off-site.
• Recovery solutions ensure prompt restoration of data and systems in case of loss, failures or cyberattacks. Regular testing and validation of recovery procedures are essential.
• Disaster recovery focuses on overall business operations restoration after major disruptions, employing measures like redundant infrastructure, alternate sites and communication channels.
• Integrated cybersecurity capabilities to defend against a variety of malware attacks, including ransomware.
- What are the 3 types of backups that can be used in manufacturing industry?Three types of backups that can be used in the manufacturing industry include:
Regular and automated backups: Perform regular automated backups for timely data protection. Consider data change frequency and potential loss impact for backup intervals. Real-time or frequent backups are recommended for dynamic data.
Incremental and full backups: Optimize storage space and backup duration by using incremental and full backups. Incremental backups capture only the changes since the last backup, reducing time and storage needs. Periodic full backups guarantee a complete data copy is always available.
Off-site backup: Ensure protection against site-specific disasters or physical threats that could affect on-site backups by maintaining off-site backups. Store them securely in separate locations, ideally geographically distant from the primary data center.
- Which type of backup is most efficient?The most efficient data backup solution for the manufacturing industry depends on various factors such as the size of the manufacturing operations, the criticality of the data, available resources and budget. It’s best to have a hybrid approach that combines on-site backups and cloud backups.
• On-site backups offer fast data access and faster recovery times. They use devices like external hard drives, NAS, or tape drives for backing up large volumes of critical data.
• Cloud backups offer secure off-site storage and additional layers of protection.
By combining on-site backups for quick accessibility and cloud backups for off-site redundancy and disaster recovery, manufacturing companies can ensure data protection, reduce downtime and have a flexible backup and recovery strategy.
- What is the 321 backup rule and does it apply to the manufacturing industry?The 3-2-1 backup rule is a widely accepted principle for ensuring data resilience. The rule states that you should have:
• Three copies of your data: Maintain at least three copies of your critical data to minimize the risk of complete data loss in the event of hardware failure, human error or cyberthreats.
• Two different storage media: Store your data on at least two different types of media (e.g., hard drives, tapes, cloud storage) and reduce the likelihood of losing all copies due to a single failure or issue affecting a specific storage type.
• One off-site backup: Keeping at least one copy of your data off-site (in a different location or using cloud storage) provides protection against site-specific disasters like natural disasters or cyberattacks.
Data backup and recovery are essential for maintaining operational efficiency and minimizing downtime. By implementing the 3-2-1 backup rule, manufacturing organizations can enhance their data protection measures.
