    This book sounds interesting for me cause it could be a essential and efficient source of good practise that can help everybody, not only lawyers etc. I’m looking for practical tips for securing my private data, so it’s not only interesting for me because of my work. Privatetly I’m a photographer amator who loves to document the world, my fam and friends. I have saved part of photos in other locations, galleries like flickr etc. but often I’m using RAW files for postprocessing and I’d like to have it properly storage (raw files are much bigger then jpg). I would like to protect myself from the situation, when somebody wants to get a picture and my memory card is unreadable and I couldn’t get them back. I’m not shooting very much so I think that 20-25 gb of storage space would be strictly enough. Is there any service that you’d recommend for such kind of actions? I’m now on a free trial offered by ComZetta, but it’s to early to review it. For me the advantage is that’s not so expensive.
