Considering A New Backup Strategy?

It is always a good time to review the backup operations and oh… can you..restore from the backups you are creating?

The worst possible time to realize that your backups suck is when you experience an event that is self-imposed, mother nature imposed or the loudest guy in the room these days RANSOMWARE.
