Being in tech for as long as I have, I've seen so many, so many problems, everything from broken hard drives to lost data to stolen computers. And I'm still amazed to this day, after doing this for 30 years, why no one really takes care of their data.
The thing is, the data is the most important with your computer. Your computer, you can go and buy another one. Okay, it might be hard work to pay for it, but you can get another computer. You can use another computer.
But to have your data safe and secure is way more important than any device. I could lose this go and buy another one annoyingly, but I know that the way I have it set up, I can get everything back.
This is what I do for my clients. And I think it was last year where I worked with a client of mine who had her computer stolen, or lost, it was on a train, and she called me, and she was completely distraught as to, "oh my god, I've lost everything" But I reminded her. We did all the work that she actually hasn't lost anything. Go and get another computer.
She got another computer while she was at the store. I told this to log into her accounts and everything. Bam! It was all there. But the thing that people don't realise is that... People are so busy with their lives and so busy with their work. They don't really think about backups and anything drastic happening until it happens when it happens. I've had clients cry because they've lost photos, they've lost data, They've lost their client information, They've lost client work. I've had people lose client work. And it's crazy. But there is light at the end of that horrible tunnel.
Listening to the ice cream van come round. You're going to hear that. You'll probably hear that.
There is light at the end of this tunnel, and that is to actually get your devices and data safe and secure in such a way where you don't have to worry about it. And again, this is what I do.
Sounds like a sales pitch now.
But this is basically what I do. I help people to make sure that this stuff is secure simply they can work easily. So, yeah, just make sure you have your stuff backed up. It's the weekend. So please take this time to make sure and ensure that everything is secure and backed up. And if not, there are people like me that can help you out.
Anyway, enjoy your weekend, and I'll see you in the next one. Ciao. Bye bye.
