It is the New Year and here are a few things you should try and accomplish:
- Change your passwords. Experts recommend changing the passwords on your sensitive accounts (e.g. email, banks, shopping sites, etc.) at least once a year.
- Back up your data. Again, making backups that include all your needed data should be done at least once a year. Store this backup offsite to make sure a calamity to your main computer does not also affect your back up.
- If you have a copyright notice add a year to the legend (i.e. © 2003–2014 Andrew M. Jaffe, Attorney at Law)
- Download any data you need to file your taxes now (e.g. bank & credit card statements) as sometimes the institutions won’t allow you to look back more than a six months or a year and you won’t be able to get all the data you need to fill out your taxes.
I know this sounds like a lot of work, and it is. Here it is the 16th of January, and I still have one of these goals to complete. I should be done by the end of the day.
