Are you adequately protecting your computer data from being stolen or lost?
Do you have plan B in place if your business files are deleted, stolen, or corrupted due to hackers, viruses, spam, or hardware failure?
As a business owner, it is your responsibility to protect your business information. A day or two without your computer or company files can tremendously affect your business’ productivity and ultimately affect your bottom line.
Here are the 3 most important safeguards you need to have in place BEFORE your computer information is lost:
1) Hire an Information Technology (IT) professional as part of your network care team. Subscribe to their unlimited support that gives you email, telephone, and onsite support for any of your computer needs or questions. This service will costs you a little each month but is worth every penny when your computer goes down.
2) Backup your computer information every night by using an online backup software like Mozy Pro. Mozy Pro is a cloud data protection service that safeguards your files from disasters like file corruption, accidental deletion, theft, viruses, and hardware failure.
Ask your IT professional about a backup plan that will automatically back up your information every night while you peacefully sleep.
3) Install antivirus and spam protection software like SecureTide®. “SecureTide® blocks 99 percent of spam and viruses, keeping your inbox clean and your network safe and comes with Quarantine Alerts that analyzes your email history and will automatically notify you if a message from or to a previous contact is quarantined for any reason.” Each morning an email report of blocked threats will be generated for you to review.
