    Do everything in the article, but plan for the worst. Take a backup regularly, and work out a routine where you keep one offsite too. These USB hard drives that are common and relatively inexpensive these days can make it easy. Get two and rotate between the two. Keep your working files in one place on your peecee's hard disk, then copy them daily to one of the USB drives. Trade the offsite one with the onsite one each week. (Adjust the schedule to meet your needs.)

    Good point Rob .. Also dont think that because you partition your drive into two , that one is off line .. its still the same drive ..

    I split my life between two worlds: flooring and IT security. Nick does a very solid job here of presenting the critical elements for a successful IT security program; whether your shop is a single computer or a Fortune 1000 flooring manufacturer. All too often, people make IT Security more complex than it really needs to be. Look no further than the headlines indicating an IT security breach; invariably, it occurred because of human error or failure to adhere to policy.
