Information on Backing up Critical Data

Alan Lambeth, ICT System Technologist II, advises everyone to backup critical information and store it in another location.  Information can be lost in any number of ways, including virus attack, hardware failure, and human error.  You can backup information on DVDs or other media, and this simply task, which takes only a few minutes, could save you thousands of dollars.  A quick Google search revealed that one data recovery company ’s starting cost for critical response is $5,000.
