This can help significantly mitigate risks from losing your data, and being assured that you have backups at different locations. These backups are secure and should be encrypted and password protected.

Once it’s set in place according to your needs, you are ready and steady. It’s like playing a process, over and over, consistent, that is exactly what you want for your needs to be met accordingly.
