Dropbox and 2FA

Just recently ran into enabling 2FA (2 Factor Authentication) for Dropbox. I think this is great!! Especially for anyone that has HIPPAA or any other data that is regulated up there. It's easy to set up (much less painful than O365) and you can use Microsoft Authenticator. Check out the instructions here.

Gotchas for Backups

Based off article "What are "Good Backups" when it comes to Ransomware" by Third Tier You need to review your backups before you are hit with ransomware. If your backup gets encrypted, you might have to pay or lose weeks or months of data. You should review how much loss of data or time can your business handle too as it will help determine your backup strategy. You should avoid backing up to a network share (ie mapped drive) on a domain computer. Especially if everyone has access to it or it uses a domain account. Some older versions of Jungle backup did this. I'm not a fan of backing up to USB based external drive. You would have to be militant about only hooking up when doing a backup
