Have a Backup Plan

Information can easily be lost or compromised due to an equipment malfunction, an error, or a virus. Schedule automatic backups of your information on a regular basis and take advantage of cloud services.

Backups also help identify what has been changed or lost. If your computer has been infected, it is important to remove the infection before resuming your work. Save some older backups, because if your computer gets infected, some of your backups may also be compromised.
