Basic Security Recommendations


Of course important data should be periodically backed up. One additional protection mechanism is to use software such as Norton Utilities to take a snapshot of your system. It can record disk partition information to a floppy, and this can be used to restore a system if a virus destroys computer system disk partition information.

Organizational Policies

Develop an organizational security policy and educate all users about the policy. Write a virus procedure to be implemented when a virus is discovered.
