Is Your Data Safe from Disaster?

Would you ever decide that you don’t need home insurance? Your belongings are often irreplaceable, or hold sentimental value, and can be very costly to replace. The same is true of your data. How long would it take you to enter it all again, or scan from hardcopies? What data would be lost forever?

Backup is insurance for your computer. A computer can be replaced easily, but your data can be irreplaceable or very costly to recover. Join Heather Stevens and Jeff Blake of SSTS who will introduce you to some backup options for the office and home.

A light luncheon will be served. Please RSVP no later than Tuesday, January 31, 4pm to Angelica Lucaci at alucaci@uwo.ca

Lunch: 11:30-12:00 SSC 5230, Session 12:00-1:00, SSC 5220
