Too Long; Didn't ReadJust relying on data backups is not enough, and regular scanning and assessment of data backup pipelines and data backup's integrity checks are necessary. The backups should be tested to ensure that the restoration is as expected.
One must realise that securing data backups needs as much attention as your main application or product.
