But while we may or may not always succeed in perfectly protecting our precious, critical data and media from being soft targets for those who would lay claim to them (not to mention the plethora of other, technological or physical catastrophes that can occur on their own), we can at least take what can be considered essentially foolproof measures to avoid ending up having lost valuable, irreplaceable data due to the damage inflicted by viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, hacktools, cyber-thieves, etc. - and this is by planning and implementing a conscientious and comprehensive program of backing up all the files, records, photos, music, videos, what have you, that we feel we cannot - or would prefer not to - live without. And those measures consist, in large part, of ensuring that our important data is regularly backed up to a second, inaccessible (to the malefactors) location.
So backing up our data - exactly what that data comprises as well as precisely what we can do to ensure that we do it properly, reliably, and thoroughly - is what we are going to discuss next.
