Tips For Protecting Your Electronic And Physical Business
As a business owner, there is no question that you have more
than a few important documents to keep track of. From financial
statements, inventory lists, employee information and more. Keeping
these documents safe and secure is essential.
However, if you do not have any measures in place to protect
these files – both electronic and physical – you may find your business
in quite a bit of trouble if disaster strikes.
Some things you can do to ensure that your documents are
safe and secure are highlighted here.
Utilize Access Control
Thieves, hackers, and even your own employees may try to
gain access to your financial records. If this information falls into the
wrong hands, it can cost you quite a bit. However, you can secure your
documents by ensuring only certain people have access to them. This

your security features are up to par.
access control systems for physical files ensuring only certain
people have access to documents.
Provide Electronic Backup For Your Files
If you have physical files stolen, damaged or lost, you can have peace of mind that you have electronic backups and that
the information is not really gone. You can back the files up on a
computer housed locally, or even use a cloud service.
If you decide to back your files up locally, you should be
sure to make several copies and store the hard drives in different
Lock Up All Physical Documents
You need to ensure that sensitive records are locked away in
a secure filing cabinet or a storage unit that is only accessible by
certain people in your organization. This will ensure that no
unauthorized person can gain access to the information.
When you use the tips here, you will find that keeping both
your electronic and physical documents safe and secure is not as
difficult as you may have believed.
Keeping Your Home Safe While Away: How To Have Your Mail
There are far too many homeowners who overlook how important
it is to have their mail held while they are away on vacation or out of
town. The fact is that having piles of mail jammed into your mailbox can
signify to would-be-thieves that you are away. The good news is that the
USPS makes it quite easy to put a hold on your mail until your return.
You can even schedule the hold 30 days before you are leaving.
Use one of these methods to ensure your mail is held while
you are away.
You can visit your local post office and request a PS Form
8076. Simply fill out the form and prior to leaving for your trip check
with your local carrier to ensure they received the hold request.
On The Phone
You can also contact USPS by phone to have your mail held. The representative you talk with will simply gather
your personal information and the date you want the hold to begin. When
you call, you will receive a confirmation number so you can be confident
that the hold will begin.
Arrange The Hold Online
Perhaps the most convenient way for you to have your mail
held is by filing out the form online. Here you can also select if you
want the accumulated mail to be delivered when you return, or if you
would like to pick it up.
Having your mail held will ensure that there is no
indication that you are not home. This is essential,
otherwise it could indicate to a burglar that your home is an easy
When it comes to personal and home safety, taking steps to
integrate the latest technology can help keep you, your home, your kids,
and even your belongings safe.
Gadgets To Increase Your Safety And Your Home’s Safety This
There is no question that the summer months are on their
way. While this means time on the beach, lake or river, it also means you
will be spending more time away from home. In order to keep you and your
home safer consider utilizing the gadgets highlighted here.
A Fake Television
Did you know that burglars are less likely to try and break
into a home that appears vacant if they see a television going? The Fake
TV will simulate the color changes and lights of a regular TV screen,
making it look as though there is someone inside. You can protect your
home and use much less energy than what it would cost to actually leave
the TV running.
Find Your Stuff
Are you one of those people who lose everything? Chances are you may have already invested in devices to help
you find your keys if they are misplaced, but did you know that there is
a gadget for other items as well? You can keep track of all your
belongings with the Stick-N-Find, which is a quarter sized GPS tracker
that can send a signal to your smartphone allowing you to easily keep
track of your belongings.
There are a number of devices you can use to keep your child
safe indoors; however, the outside world is another story. Installing a
pool alarm can help to minimize the chance that your child will fall into
your pool and drown. There are all types of alarms available, so be sure
to find the right one for your needs.

Q & A with Robert Faucett,
Founder-R. Faucett Construction Inc.
To learn more about R. Faucett
Construction Inc. I spoke with founder Robert Faucett.
Knowing that custom high-end residential construction is the focus of
Robert’s company I wanted to know what that entailed and what services
they offer. According Mr. Faucett about 50% of
their work is building new homes from start to finish. They also work on
large scale home renovations and historical restorations.
They’re able to complete most, if not all work, in-house due
to their staff of carpenters, custom millwork shop, and ability to offer
design services. In fact Robert and his wife both hold a degree in
Architecture. They are committed to continuing education in construction
techniques, new materials, and management practice not only for
themselves, but their employees as well.
While Robert and his team are more than capable of
completing projects from the design phase to final construction, also
known as “design-build,” they maintain longstanding working relationships
with trusted architects; adding value and quality to their already
immaculate work. Robert’s hope for the future of R. Faucett
Construction Inc. is to incorporate more design-build projects, which
currently makes up about 20% of their work.
Many of their residential projects exude a modern or
contemporary design which Robert says, “by nature is challenging and
detailed.” While their work is not exclusively contemporary, Robert and
his team are educated in the subtle nuances and fine details it takes to
successfully design and build in such a fashion. With a penchant for
details nothing gets overlooked including measures to create more
environmentally friendly and sustainable projects. Robert and his staff
stay informed on best practices when it comes to sustainability in order
to provide better home performance and conserve energy. This
benefits not only the homeowner but the environment as well. Currently,
Robert and his staff are working on a “Net-Zero” home that takes home
efficiency to the next level by consuming “zero energy.” The home
effectively produces all the energy it needs through solar panels vs conventional power supplies.

building one from scratch the professionals at R. Faucett
Construction Inc. can provide unparalleled service that is sure to
deliver customer satisfaction. Located in Flemington, NJ they have
