Keep an eye on your IT system security


– Just putting something into the Recycle Bin doesn’t delete it. You need to empty the recycle bin to get rid of it completely. Whilst it’s in the Recycle Bin, it’s still taking up space on your hard drive.

– Dropbox is not as safe as advertised. Although it seems like a simple solution for file sharing, they have had several security breaches over the past few years, one of which left all Dropbox accounts effectively open to anyone. If you are going to use it, please be careful with what information you choose to put on there.

– Backups might seem boring, but we cannot express how important they are. Ensure you always have an up to date backup of your data, and that your backups are verified throughout the year to ensure you can recover data from the backups.
