  • Take a Backup.
  • Take another Backup
  • Make sure that one of your backups is held in a location that is suitable far away from your original backup.
  • Make sure that your backups are updated at regular intervals, or regenerated from scratch if it makes the process easier to manage.
  • Make sure that you check that your backups can be read. For example open up a word document, or import your accounts files into a system that isnt the same one that they came from.
  • Make sure that your backups are secured from prying eyes, but if you use encryption to protect them, make sure that you are able to decrypt backups when required.
