It is important to back up our important and sensitive information offline, timestamp it and double check the back up is working and it can be restored.
Whether it’s your photos, bank statements, legal documents or patient records, it significantly reduces your risk to have a backup of your important information in your control. If it’s very sensitive, you may also want to encrypt it. The reason it is important to have a timestamped back up is that if you’re a victim of a virus or a cyber attack where information has been changed, deleted or locked off from you, you can find the last valid back up to restore from without reinstalling the virus. This is important on your own devices but also that information that is important to you that you store in the cloud.
