Prevention is better than a Cure!

Protection of your system should be paramount! 

Are you backing up your system?

Have you tried to restore it lately?

We would recommend:

  • Do a weekly back-up
  • Store this onto a removable hard drive
  • Take it off site
  • Check you can restore your data on a regular basis
  • Why not back up in the cloud?

In order to prevent these things happening, there are many things to consider, such as Anti-Virus, Internet Usage and Back-Up for example.

It is important to have anti-virus to protect your system when you are using the Internet on a daily basis.

Have you got a disaster recovery policy?

PLAN A: Get a disaster recovery policy

PLAN B: Test it!

Disaster recovery is vital for all companies. This involves planning for
keeping all aspects of a business functioning in the midst of any disruptive
events. These events could be;

Natural events; earthquakes, flooding or tornados.

Man-made events; hazardous material spills, infrastructure fail, loss or bio-terrorism.

All of these can be prevented by the simple planning and using surveillance to help avoid or lessen the chances of this happening.

Security is always going to be a potential risk no matter how many procedures you put into place, so you should always be prepared.

Think about a disaster recovery plan - the most important part of this should be your Back-Up Procedure!
