Doing an Audit

Strategically: You could use the higher level but extensive ACE Digital Culture Compass (requires a login). The Digital Culture Compass was commissioned by Arts Council England and The National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of the UK Government’s Culture is Digital initiative.

However, the focus of this talk is to provide more tactical ideas but it is always worth doing an audit, even a basic one tabulated and easy to refer to:

  1. What do you have:
  2. Hardware
  3. Operating System(s) 
  4. Software
  5. Anti-virus and other security tools
  6. Web presences
  7. Social media
  8. Databases
  9. Network(s)
  10. Till(s)
  11. What do you have in the ‘Cloud’
  12. How old?, Up to date?, Who manages?, Any known problems?
  13. Do you have backps and do they actually work?
  14. Do you have a digital disaster recovery plan?

A bit about Steve

You may have come here looking for some help with a web site. If you have come here for my sailing, woodworking, cycling or family history pages pop over here.

OK I build web sites - usually for small businesses, community or volunteer groups. I know what it can be like for you - unsure about costs, what you get for your money, will it be worth it? I will be absolutley clear right up front. There will be no hidden charges and you will get my full support. You may not even have to pay anything until your site goes live. Your satisfaction is my focus. I can provide great references from other satisfied customers. There is nothing to lose by contacting me - I won't hassle you afterwards. I like to keep it worry free for you.
