I said before that your home is your castle. Since it’s your castle, you need to protect it. But I think I’m going to add a little bit to that. I came to the realization that what is important to us isn’t always something tangible. Sure, physical stuff like your car, your wallet, your clothes and all that are important. But there’s also a lot of important stuff that’s more virtual. I’m talking about your computer and all the files that you have inside of it. Think of it this way. Your computer is your castle too, and you also have to protect it.
So that means that you try to keep nasty viruses and trojans out. Don’t open any dodgy email attachments and be careful when handling other people’s portable drives. You also need to set up the best USB backup software that you can find. After all, even the most well defended of castles can be penetrated by intruders. The backups are done to ensure that even if the worst case scenario happens, you won’t lose all your precious data.
