Detox with DataSpace

/, Blog, Data Storage/Detox with DataSpace

If Christmas is the time for over-indulging and excess then January is most certainly the time for detoxing.  As we start to wind down for Christmas it can be easy to forget that, before we know it, the New Year will be here and the January blues will set in.

But there are things we can do to make the pain of heading back to work and leaving the festive period behind a little easier.



If your office or workplace has been full of sweets, treats and mince pies, then make sure you clear them away before you leave for the holidays.  There is nothing worse than detoxing in January only to come back to a pile of sweets on your desk.  By getting rid of the temptation now you will make life much easier!

Clear desks

Make sure that all employees leave their desks clean and tidy before they head off.  Ask for all Christmas cards and decorations to be taken down so that come the first week in January, you are not wasting precious working hours tidying and clearing up.


If you have documents that are kept in your office but are highly confidential, now may be a time to store them off site.  This is especially true if you are closing down over the Christmas period.  Don’t let a flood, bad weather or a break-in mean that you lose valuable data.

Plan of action

Should a data breach occur over the Christmas period, make sure you have an emergency plan of action in place.  This is vital if you want to limit the effects of the data breach.

Overall, if you have a concern regarding the safety of your data over the holiday season, then speak to us.  Peace of mind is what you need at this time of year and here at DataSpace we are on hand to give you just that.
