World Backup Day 2019

Celebrated On March 31st

Data is essential to us all.  We rely on it complete even the most basic daily tasks, and yet it is so easy to take for granted.

World Backup Day was established to remind us of the importance of data in our lives, and why we must make a sincere effort to protect it.

Think of all the information you access every day.  Photos, documents, financial records, calendars, reminders, even shopping lists are all stored electronically.  Having all that data right there at your fingertips makes life easier than ever before.  When something goes wrong, however, and that data is gone, even the most basic tasks become nearly impossible.

That is why we encourage you to take a few minutes on March 31st each year to make sure that your data is backed up and secure.  If it is, set aside some time to check and make sure that those backups are working properly and that you have access to them.  If your data is not backed up, mark the 31st in your calendar as the day you will fix that.

GDPR and You

Surprised that in the last month, between two small marketing list brokers, more than a billion personal records were found to have been leaked on the internet?1

That data then gets leaked and sold to potentially hold users’ computers or reputation for ransom. Or as in a 2018 hack, of DNA tester, MyHeritage, there is the ability to sell the data to the insurance and mortgage industries, revealing DNA disease susceptibilities, thereby making the user ineligible for coverage or a loan.2

GDPR to the Rescue!

From Farm to Bryley’s Table

Bryley’s client, Wilson Farm, is an upscale market for farm-fresh produce, home baked goods and prepared foods. On Sunday, we took a trip to their farm stand and came home with delicious prepared gourmet dinners, fruits and treats. For our employees, we bought them a beautiful cake decorated as a present and Monday became “Cake Day” at Bryley Systems!

Wilson Farm was founded by Irish immigrants and has been in operation at its present location, Lexington, MA since 1884.

Thank you for the delicious cake!
