  12. 12. Follow the 3-2-1 Rule • 3 copies of your data • In 2 locations • On more than 1 type of storage hardware
  13. 13. Take Better Notes • Data without documentation are often unusable
  14. 14. Organize Your Files • Pick a system • Get in the habit • Work out a system with your coworkers • Also helps to name your files consistently
  15. 15. Review Your Data Security Plan • If you have sensitive data, make a plan • Who has access? • Strategies to limit access • Who’s responsible? • Make sure everyone knows the plan
  16. 16. Check Your Old Files • Do you know where your old data are? • And the documentation? • Do you still have the software to read the files? • Is the hardware old or becoming obsolete?
