Any business owner worth their salt knows the value of data to business. This is why it’s bizarre that many business owners don’t have a proper data backup strategy in place. Organizations of all sizes need to take a proactive approach to backing up their data, and there are several solutions they can implement to do that.
Your Mac’s Time Machine should be your primary backup system. Not only does it let you restore your Mac to a happy working state after a crash, but it also lets you recover individual files or folders you may have accidentally erased. Additionally, as its name suggests, you can see what files looked like an hour ago or anytime in the recent past.
Some of the most well-known companies in the world have been victims of cyberattacks, including Sony Pictures, Home Depot, Adobe, and eBay. While major corporations are high-profile targets for hackers, small- and medium-sized businesses are not exempt, so they need to secure their networks and data.
It is widely believed that Macs are the most trusted computers today. Unlike other computers, they don’t crash often and are better protected against viruses and other malware. But despite their outstanding qualities, Macs are still susceptible to theft, and even crashes.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have already caused billions of dollars in damages, but hurricane season is far from over. Experts are predicting that there will be five more major tropical storms through October, and if they present risks to your business, it’s time to establish a watertight disaster recovery (DR) plan.
In the world of cybersecurity, there’s no time to rest. Hackers are constantly developing malware, and reusing attacks that were successful in the past. Recently, hackers have revived the Locky ransomware, and it has already infected thousands of computers worldwide.
For many businesses, applications like Google Drive are heaven-sent. They make managing files and photos much easier and safer than manually saving them in external disk drives. That said, backing up all files remains a burden to those who have files stored on several devices and can’t seem to transfer these files onto Google Drive or any other cloud platform.
iOS updates for iPhone happen on a regular basis. And while you may be in the habit of updating without giving a second thought, there are benefits to being patient and prepared. By doing so, you may end up saving yourself from unnecessary headaches that come along with a premature iOS update.
