"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Make sure you have a good, solid anti-virus solution in place on the servers and workstations.

Educate the users to not upload anything that they might have a question or concern about.

Make frequent backups so that if/when something is uploaded you can recover.
