Today, we're going to talk about cybersecurity and whether we can ever be safe. Well, the short answer is no. However, we can try damn hard to be safe. We can be diligent and continue the game of cat and mouse to make sure that we're on top of it. The good news is crime, in general, is on the down, but online, there are a lot of risks. You can hold people, companies to ransom.

One of the easiest ways to secure yourself is to make sure that you've got your stuff backed up and it's in an offsite location. If you've got a managed IT service provider, they can make sure that they're looking after that for you and they're backing it up onsite and remotely in your own private cloud.
