Take advantage of cloud storage — but don’t neglect physical backups

Cloud storage can be an invaluable way to access your important documents and data remotely and keep it safe in case your local storage fails. However, cloud storage is typically kept behind a password, meaning an unauthorized user can potentially access it if they have your credentials. In addition, cloud storage isn’t 100% safe from data breaches or outages. To keep your data safe and secure, use a physical backup such as an external hard drive in addition to cloud storage.
