Backups are important. You’re stupid if you don’t believe that.

I recently had a customer get into some nasty CryptoWall issues. For those of you not familiar with CryptoWall or CryptoLocker, just Google the name and you’ll see some pretty good articles about a pretty evil virus that encrypts everything on your network, holds it for ransom, and then basically sticks you with a huge headache.

All I have to say is… if you don’t have good backup procedures in place, with multiple copies of all of your files, spread out over several days, one person can ruin everything for your business… EVERYTHING.
