What Would You Do If You Forgot Your Name?
A look at the unexpected…

NO it has nothing to do with a seniors moment.

Are you ready? Canadian Data Protection is ready to talk about backups. - With more than 50 years of service in the information technology field, Joe O’Hara and his staff have what it takes to safeguard your most important technological asset: your information.

Sooner or later, you WILL lose data. It may be because of hard drive failure, laptop theft, fire, vandalism, virus, or you might inadvertently delete some critical item. How will you recover that precious information? A good technology plan includes a strategy to protect data and enable recovery in the event of disaster.

Imagine losing your client list, contacts folder, sales forecasts, or your accounts payable files. That last one sounds like it might be alright, but before you ask for help to make that happen, consider how you’d feel about losing your accounts receivable files! Our clients run the gamut of industry sectors: financial institutions, insurance agencies, tax preparers, accountants, retail operations, consultants, and many more. Using a computer in your business, or at home? What have you done to protect your data?

DICEGamble only what you can afford to lose. Are you gambling with your data?

We’ll talk about backups, best practices, worst case scenario discussion as it applies to data backup in general, and offsite protection in specific. We’ll keep it light, informative and as interactive as possible. Your group will leave thinking about whether they really are prepared for that big crash, and with some ideas to help them to remember their names!

The Club's General Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at Faith United Church, 1778 Nash Road in Courtice, 7:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
