Protect Your Data
Cantrell’s Computer Sales and Service makes these suggestions on how to protect your data and work products.
Data Back Up. Be sure to back up your data to at least one location away from your computer – two would be better. If your office/home were destroyed in an earthquake or fire, your back up would also be destroyed if you keep it in the same location. Store your back ups online. Or take your home back ups to your office and vice versa. Also do a periodic “fire drill” to see if your backups are capturing all your data and that you can retrieve this data.
Passwords. Use passwords and encryptions to protect sensitive data. Control who has access to these passwords – keep them locked up and not sitting on your desk.
Safeguards. Implement safeguards to protect your data. Physical safeguards include preventing intrusion and guarding against natural/environmental hazards. Be sure you have policies and procedures to insure you really do protect your data regularly.
If your computer does fail, call us at Cantrell’s Computer Sales and Service (925-827-1200) to get you back up and running.
