Whether your organization is an educational institution, business, or government, keeping the data safe and secure is very important. Keeping your organization’s data center protected is a huge priority. You always want to make sure you’ve got the best data storage technology readily available. Read on for a couple of ways to ensure that your data centers remain protected from any outside threats!
Control the Physical Access to Your Organization and Data Center
Physical attacks could be even worse than the average cyber attacks. Make sure that whichever data center you pick has plenty of physical security measures set up in place. You can trust En-Net Services to keep your data centers secure by offering the best data storage solutions from the best leading manufacturers.
Zoning for Data Security in Your Data Center
Zoning in a data center will keep it both organized and secure by keeping groups of different data separate from one another. For example, let’s say a data center has around five zones, and somehow zone 4 is entirely corrupted through hacking or other source. Since the data center is zoned, then zones one through three and five will be fine, and administrators will have an easier time finding out the trustworthy source of the corruption and dealing with it than if all of the data than if all of the precious data was just jumbled together.
Natural Disasters and Weather Conditions
Since data centers are real physical buildings, they’re susceptible to many of the same kinds of natural damage as any other kind of building. High winds, sleet, driving rain, snow, different extreme temperatures, electrical storms, and more could jeopardize your data center’s security. Any time there is a type of extreme weather condition, there should be a thorough visual inspection of your building. Any imperfections should be fixed up right away to ensure that the structure remains intact. There should also be a dependable power supply so clients won’t lose access to their data due to a power outage. If you store your data through cloud computing, you won’t have to worry about potential data loss during an unfortunate weather accident.
Test Consistently and When You Can
Perhaps the most important tip of all, the security measures you’ve set in place, both cyber and physical, must be tested consistently. It is much easier not to have any problems in the first place than it is to fix something up after an incident happens.
