Are you ready for the NEW YEAR? 2 things you must remember to do:
1. BACK UP ALL YOUR BUSINESS AND PERSONAL DATA
Back up all your important files, including images and music. This is one thing that most folks forget to do. If we take lessons from recent hurricanes and other weather disasters where a business or personal computer can be destroyed in a blink of an eye, the loss is not the $1000+ computer that can be replaced. What cannot be replaced is the priceless data, business/personal records, pictures and music that one compiled over years.
There are many ways to back up your system. Most common are the portable hard drives which can be kept in a fire safe in your office. For a larger enterprise, tape backup is usually the best solution. There are now also services called ???¦?Cloud backup services???¦? where you transmit your important files to a series of highly protected server facilities with redundant systems to ensure your data is accessible at all times and fully protected.
The important thing to remember is to back up regularly and if you are using a portable device, make sure you have a fire safe where you can keep that drive safe.
2. REMEMBER TO SHRED ALL OLD FILES
Shredding confidential information can protect you and your business from security breaches and identity theft. Shredding will also keep you in compliance with the new HIPAA Privacy and Security regulations.
Don???¦??t forget to shred all those unsolicited offers for credit, these can be targets for identity thieves.
When choosing a shredder, knowing how much you usually need to shred and how often, will help you purchase a unit that will do that work. The lowest cost device is not always the best solution.
