#20: Backup Basics and Contingency Planning

May 13, 2018 | Office Operations

Part of spring cleaning your cluttered digital life is having things set up so that you also have peace of mind – which creates more SPACE in your life by not having to worry if and when things go wrong.

Let’s face it, files will accidentally get deleted, your website will get (or may already have been) hacked, you may or may not be in compliance with IRS regulations when it comes to file archival and retention, your team may forget, you may have assumed something was being done when it was not… we are all human and things happen.

Which is why it’s super important you have a backup plan.

This week we’ll be talking about backup basics and contingency planning because I don’t want you to be left unprepared and unprotected. I go over why you need a backup system, common myths, plus my 4-point web security plan.
