Three things you can do today to protect your data

A cyber-attack can cost you lost data, including personal and professional information such as pictures, documents, financial details, and client information. Below are three simple things that you can do to protect yourself and your business from losing this all -important information.


· Firstly, you should always back up your data. This involves creating a copy of your information and duplicating it across several devices, or online cloud systems.


· Secondly, reduce the risk by using at least two different storage technologies. This could be internal or external hard drives, removable media (CDs, DVDs, USB flash drives, etc), or cloud storage.


· Finally, make sure that you turn on the option to update automatically – usually found in settings. Ensuring that your whole team has this setting will help to combat data loss in the event of a cyber-attack.
