Having our data backed up is one of the best ways we can instantly recover from cyber attacks. Imagine getting a ransomware attack, encrypting all your data indefinitely unless you pay a ransom to the cyber criminals. With cloud back-ups, you'd restore your data and just shrug the attack off as a mere inconvenience! Without it, you'd have to spend hours trying to recover your data and the likelihood is, you wouldn't get it back.
Follow the instructions in the video below step by step. If you prefer written instructions, these can be found below.
1. Choose your back-up method.
2. Install your chosen option (A or B).

a. Option A: Automatic (preferred) - create your own secure personal cloud that automatically backs-up your PC in real-time. Selecting this option prevents us needing to manually back-up (step 3 below).
b. Option B: Manual - use a secure cloud service; SpiderOak (£3.90/month) or Tresorit (£6.67/ month).
