Working from home was an enjoyable experience when I started my business. It had it’s challenges, like being able to switch off, but at the early part of my business life it meant I didn’t have to pay separate rent for premises. I had a computer station set up in the corner of our dining area and I only got premises when I hired on staff.

So far, so good, until a break-in when we were out for a meal, and the theft of my laptop meant I lost all of my business data. I did have an external hard drive, but I hadn’t kept it up-to-date. The resulting inconvenience and embarrassment (as I had to contact customers and suppliers) meant that from that day I have maintained multiple backups of everything, daily.

I hope you find the articles on this website useful, and if you haven’t already, use them as motivation to get your data secured.

All the best,
