Everywhere you look, sadly, there is some form of security to protect our valuables. Alarms and motion detectors for the home, anti-auto theft devices for vehicles, heavy duty locks for bikes, safes for money and valuables, passwords and encryption to protect data, and the list goes on and on.
I wonder if there is anything of value nowadays that doesn’t get secured?
Regrettably not unless you’re asking to part with it.
Because of high theft, we have become a locked up, secured, and highly protected society. Anything valuable must have security to protect it.
So what do I use to protect my writing?
My hard-earned labor of love gets only the best of security from my trusted Iron Key.
What’s an Iron Key?
It’s a type of heavy-duty memory key that travels with me wherever I go, protecting all my written stories. It’s the world’s most secure flash drive with military-grade encryption. Comes with a secure private browser that protects your password when online and cannot be disabled by worms, viruses or other malware.
I accidently put it to the test when I used my son’s infected laptop. Although I ignorantly worked on the laptop for a number of hours, unaware it had a virus, nothing on my key was compromised. Phew!
Should I lose my key, ten incorrect passwords tries will literally disintegrate the data, meaning no trace of recovery and insuring my work doesn’t get into dishonest hands. As well, a rugged, tamper-resistant, waterproof, metal casing that protects against physical damage should I accidently subject it to the elements.
For Backing Up and Storing Files
Of course, in addition, all my writing is backed up to a secure hosting service like Drop Box and a personal hard drive. Unfortunately, once my stories are published or distributed, the protection is minimal. Plagiarism is a thriving industry, but at least, I have the peace of mind of having it under lock and key until it reaches my readers.
