Protect Your Priceless Data from Thieves and Disasters
Your data captures your essence. Protect it!
Silicon Valley, Seattle, San Diego: That we live in an increasingly hostile world is self-evident. Though cash has been king throughout the millennia, something quite profound has happened with the advent of computers. Within a few years, our business --every equation and process that gives order to our day and every relation that defines its history -- has been detailed and stored in a computer and represents 1000s of hours of work.
Your data is so unique, recreating it would be debilitating.
One of the biggest problems in small business today is that we under-estimate the value of that data and we have trouble believing anything can happen to those computers - until it does. And, it will.
Issues that face each of us range from viruses to automated internet attacks to outright theft and natural disasters. The cost of these issues in lost information and lost time sometimes is the business itself. Most of us know we need to take a few steps to secure our data but simply do not know where to start.
This episode of the show is our 1-2-3. Please, have somebody in your business become an expert. If you are a sole proprietor, you'll just have to do it!

There are crazy, unethical, dishonest and downright mean-spirited people out there. You have to protect yourself. They usually prey on each other, but when that is too tough, they look for the sweet, the naive, the trusting, and the unsuspecting. Then, there is the forever unpredictable Mother Nature. Mix the two together, and we court disaster every day!
You have come to a safe harbor. Here the people at least try to be ethical and they are trying to make the world a better place. There are three other episodes of the show that touch on other facets of this problem. Click here to go to the discussion about intellectual property. Click here to study knowledge management tools.
