3 Easy Steps to Protect Your Firms Data on a daily basis:

  1. Perform daily backups with at least 5 backup sets of media. Daily rotate this media and once a week take a backup set off site, to a bank or to your home. A lot of companies use the same backup device every day. If the media (floppy, CD, Zip, etc) is no good you do not have a valid restorable backup.
  2. Have "all" computers that access your accounting system plugged into an interruptible power supply, including the network server. This protects your computer from corrupt information due to power fluctuations.
  3. From time to time test the backup device to make sure it is functioning properly. Too many times we attempt to help companies restore a backup that is not readable.
