The information you need to run your business is kept on your computer’s hard drive. If this fails, or ‘crashes’, and you haven’t backed up the information, it can be very bad news for your business.
Your system can also be attacked by viruses. A virus is a piece of malicious computer code that can be downloaded onto your computer and it can have a disastrous effect on your business.
Viruses can also be in emails pretending to come from legitimate sources, so it’s important not to click on any links that you do not totally trust.
