I had the good fortune to interview freelance technology consultant Willie Jackson on this topic today, and invite you to listen to our 25-minute podcast about data security. Willie is a former technology consultant for Accenture, and one of the six "accomplices" recently chosen by Seth Godin to work on The Domino Project. Willie was also featured in my side hustle and flow series earlier this year. Common data security mistakes discussed in the podcast:
Services discusses on the podcast:
AVG Free (for Windows)
Backupify Vault Press (extra special support, but requires "golden ticket" invitation. I am pretty sure the service is run by Willie Wonka)
Web Host Page.ly
If you are too overwhelmed to get backups set up yourself, holler at Willie:

May your backups be secure and all your data bright and clean in 2011!
