Over the last few months, I have watched as major sites have been hacked. These range from email accounts to larger data bases. As I am not a techie person, the idea of backing up my files seems like a daunting task. Thank goodness I have a partner who takes care of these tech matters on our site. If you don’t have someone to do it for you, then I highly recommend you learn how to do this NOW!
It seems like daily I hear news of something or someone who has had their site compromised. My partner, Jolynn, says back up your files on an external hard drive. I was listening in on a Skype conversation, by site owners, where Mr. D.A. Riley said “I do daily, weekly and monthly backups… on a separate disk.” D.A. is not only a site owner but a programmer, as well. I think his statement alone let’s you know the importance of keeping your sites safe by establishing current backups.
Another safety measure you can take – change your passwords regularly. Hey, this something even I can do!
