Network security analysts in Apple Valley are reviewing the aftermath of the Panama Papers, an offshore money scandal involving heads of state, powerful business people, professional athletes, celebrities, and assorted millionaires around the world.
The Panama Papers & How It Affects Apple Valley Business Data Practices
Thus far, details about the incident indicate that things could have been worse for the secretive law firm at the center of the Panama Papers. The data leak seems to have been an inside job by at least one whistleblower who breached an email and file server and copied 2.6 terabytes of confidential documents and messages.
In 2012, oil giant Saudi Aramco was subject to a cyber attack perpetrated by political activists who explicitly wanted to wipe out the digital presence of this oil firm. The hard drives of more than 30,000 desktops and servers were attacked by malware that sought to wipe out the entire IT infrastructure of Aramco.

Although Sonic Systems is not aware of such a massive scale cyber attack in Apple Valley, a 2014 incident proves that even cloud platforms and backups can be compromised in the absence of good data security practices.
The lesson learned from cyber attacks in Apple Valley that involve data destruction is that data backups need to be protected as much as operational servers, and this requires the implementation of certain policies and practices.
