Secure Digital Class

Your data is your life! How to back up, Secure IT, sync and sleep better at night.

Nobody likes to admit it, but by January 3rd. each year we have forgotten everything or postpone our New Year resolutions with good intentions of self improvement. How many of us have chosen to "lose weight" as one of our personal commitments? Despite a healthy lifestyle is an admirable goal, I would suggest that the most important resolution is that we take steps Never mind that New Year's Eve is history and this was not on their list to get yourself protected and your data backed-up securely is no longer something anyone should deferred.

Our world is full of electronic threats external and internal computer software and hardware problems. Viruses and Trojans fought their firewall without rest and at some point almost all hard drives will fail. It is a question of whether going to happen, but when it will happen. In addition, this new world of our Universal offers Internet access. The criminals behind bars and the criminal who lives in the block may find its way into your home or business and pillage their electronic records. If the bad guys attack him, his malicious virus finally – it's just a matter of time.

The goal of everyone who owns a computer must be confidence bullets of personal data, protection of our personal identity and all related digital information. There is no more important decision you can make to protect yourself and your family for the loss or theft digital. To make matters worse, management and organization of our personal data is increasingly complex. Us keep our data on our desktops, updates the copy of our laptops and trying to juggle everything between our Blackberry or cell phones.

For the average non-techie user (which would most of us), this dance of data is reaching the 'out of control "stage. who makes his living online, I was forced to find a solution that was safe, convenient, scalable and cost effective. After safety, my main problem was the factor Convenience, I needed something that was basically automatic. I forgot to back up critical files in the past and lost a series of hard drives in the recent years, and I do not want to relive those experiences.

The following recommendations are not hypothetical or advice offered only as good intentions, this is how I manage, backup, protect and synchronize my data with cheap products and services I use every day.

Data backup: above that are available on my website. Mozy is 100% automatic, safe and economic amazing! They use SSL encryption to 128-bit during the transfer process data, which is the same method banks use. 448-bit Blowfish encryption protects your files on their servers keep your data safe from hackers. Mozy copies up your files if they are open or closed and backup files Outlook provides email protection disaster-proof. World class unlimited backup, the state of the art security, automatic and 100% peace of mind will cost a whopping $ 4.95 month. Duh! That should not require much thought.

I'm not paranoid about data loss (well maybe a little), but also sometimes used Mozy a local backup. There are times that I have created important documents, written chapters in a book or made changes around the site to a web site and could be many hours Mozy before starting your backup every night. In these cases, I'll make a quick backup an external hard drive as a Maxtor or Flash drive. If you have ever lost accidentally a document in which they worked as slaves for hours … you'll understand.

Data Synchronization:

Once you have placed your main service data backup in place, you'll want to coordinate the synchronization of data between all computers and networks or other peripheral devices. The removable (USB Key, Flash Drive, CD-RW disc) in a local network or the Internet. PC Magazine, Network World and other trusted sites GoodSync give their stamp of approval and You can add my support to that list.

GoodSync offers true bi-directional synchronization, which prevents the removal of files and data loss. As that Mozy, GoodSync is by far the easiest and most intuitive program I've discovered synchronization at any price. GoodSync offers effortless automatic synchronization, and this is another no-brainer. You can download and use GoodSync for free, but I recommend that you upgrade to GoodSync Pro for $ 19 and use all its amazing features and free upgrades.

Data Protection:

My antivirus program of choice is avast! Home Edition. I've been using this program for years and have never had an incident. avast! is a full-featured antivirus package designed for home users and non-commercial use and the Home Edition is free. Am sure you are curious as to why a robust program would be free. It is his opinion that it is possible to prevent the global spread of viruses by preventing effective and many users can not or do not want to pay for antivirus software. I believe the marketing spin is that when you see how well this program does, I'll buy version commercial for your business.

Resident protection (the real-time protection of the operating system), is one of the most important parts of an antivirus program. avast! features a powerful resident module that is able to detect a virus before it has any chance to infect your computer. You can expect 100% detection of In-the-Wild viruses (viruses already spreading between users) and excellent detection of Trojan horses.

Personal Security:

While we're talking about how to protect and back up staff, it is my opinion that the work is not complete until it has been protected. You have medical and life insurance, but are

I remember the early days of the Commercial Internet when rumors began to circulate about malware being spread by discharges files. The first attacks of viruses are harmless to current standards and antivirus programs had not yet been introduced. Most were rumors at the time, but everyone seemed to know someone – who knew someone – who had been attacked by a virus. " It was not long before such a thing became identity theft. Although this is one of the fastest growing crimes, we are in the initial stage of a global scourge. You've probably heard Paul Harvey or Sean Hannity talk Proactive Protection Agency, which specializes in identity theft prevention rather than just reporting it. LifeLock, founded in 2005 and is considered the industry leader.

Such crimes are an unfortunate part of life in our modern world, but there is something you can do to protect themselves from thieves more clever indeed identity. This is by far the cheapest insurance you can buy to prevent identity theft happens to you. Is LifeLock Identity Theft Prevention Solution backed by a guarantee of one million dollars! Probably not publish my Social Security number online, but I'm a customer of LifeLock and have peace of mind I know that full circle in my concern for the safety for the New Year and beyond.

DIY Security

When it comes to our personal data, losing or having it stolen is a devastating experience, life altering. None of us questioned the need for health insurance and life insurance, but few of us have data or identity protection insurance us. This is not something you should postpone the resolution of next year. You can implement a strategy as I have described for a few dollars per month, and you can DIY in a matter of hours.

When your data is safe in place, I would be willing to bet that you spend a quieter night you can remember, and no hangover in the morning, regardless of the amount of data you did last night. For web.
