Clip from: Protect Your Priceless Data - Understand Security

Meet Art Wong of Symantec, data security guru

Silicon Valley, Seattle, San Diego:  One of the biggest problems in small business today is that we under-estimate the value of our 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!

Embrace the Connected World

DAVID PERRY: Here were are. We live in a world where we've developed a whole lot of elaborate Internet capabilities.

HATTIE: (voiceover) This is David Perry, Global Director of Education for TrendMicro.

DAVID PERRY: But, along with that comes the threats that are inherent. Easy to use is easy to use. Easy to install is easy to install. Easy to hack is easy to hack and that's the world that we live in today. The most important thing about your computer environment is not the computer. All of the information that you keep on your computer is important. That's why you have a computer is to deal with data. Information is property. And if you're going to protect that information, you better start thinking about it now.
