So you’ve spent a few hundred to a thousand pounds on a new computer to run your business on but you haven’t protected it yet.

Tools such as mobile security from Lookout will help your devices stay secure and be protected from viruses.

It is also a good idea to keep this information in an easily accessible place for you, in case you’re at a meeting and need to review sales figures or need a clients address or phone number. Cloud storage solutions such as Asset Bank keep your data safe in the cloud whilst being easily accessible for you wherever you are (as long as you have internet connection).
