Primarily, your concern should be the usage of daily backup procedures
to protect against hard disk failures. Add them to your check lists
and make sure that sufficient backup media are available. Provide a
safe place to store them, preferably not at the recording
site. As mentioned before, good backup media are CD-Rs or tapes.
Security against Data Loss
As a second concern protect your data against vandalism. Use
passwords and disconnect your equipment from the network when not
used. Make sure that no unauthorized personnel may access the
equipment because most computer systems are vulnerable if the
intruder has direct access to the system.
