Chapter 17. Securing Your PC > Backing Up Your Work

Backing Up Your Work

The most important thing you can do to safeguard your data is to back it up! Yes, it can be time-consuming. Yes, it is a hassle. But the most valuable thing isn't the computer itself, but the data on it. Re-creating data is not easy, and in some cases is not possible. Say, for instance, that you store all your chapters for your next great book. Can you re-create them? Say, as another example, that you store all your contact information about your company on your computer. Can you re-create that data from a hodge-podge of business cards you might be able to round up?

Another important security issue is protecting your computer while using the Internet. Internet security issues are covered in Chapter 8, “Browsing the Internet.”
