It may be a sports car or your daily driver–but either way, your car is your baby. You want to take care of it and make sure that it is in the best condition possible. There are a variety of things that you can do to take care of your ride, but there are some things that should take priority.

Get Car Insurance

This may seem like an easy decision, especially since you are legally required to have insurance, but you want to make sure your car has the proper level of coverage with a company that isn’t going to short-change you. Comprehensive collision insurance will provide protection for your car, regardless if you are at fault, someone else is, or there is a freak accident. When shopping for the best car insurance, talk to a variety of providers and get quotes from each of them. Don’t be afraid to tell them what their competitors are offering, as this may convince some companies to lower their price.

Perform Routine Maintenance

You use your car regularly, so you should make sure it is running properly regularly. You know that you should be changing your oil on a schedule, but you should also check your oil at least once a month. When you are checking your oil levels, take a peek at the other fluid levels in your car. Most of them don’t need to be changed as often as your oil, but it never hurts to be aware. You should also check your tire pressure at least once a month. Setting a schedule for checking these things can depend on what works best for you. You can check every time you fill your car up or you can choose a day to do it every month. Whatever you decide, make sure you stick to it.

Keep Your Car in a Secure Location

Making sure that your car is secure is just as important as taking care of the engine. One of the safest places to keep your car is in your garage, but that won’t make a difference if you don’t secure your garage. A lot of burglars try to access the garage because it usually doesn’t have much security and contains valuable items. Always make sure you lock the doors and close the garage door all the way. If you have a home security system, consider placing some of your cameras in the garage and make sure that your doors are alarmed.

Limit Who Has Access to the Car

If you have several drivers in your family, you may be sharing your car with them. But that doesn’t mean they have to have access to it all the time. Don’t give everyone a key to the car. Instead, keep a copy of the key for yourself and have a spare that you can loan out. When someone needs to use the car, give them the spare and have them return it afterward. This will limit the access to your car and reduce the chance of someone losing or having a key stolen.

The little things make all the difference when it comes to protecting your car. You don’t want to end up a creek without a working car, so make sure that you are doing what you can to take care of it.

HIPAA Data Breaches In First Half Of 2015 (Jan to June) – An Indepth Analysis [Infographic]

The 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) pose unique challenges to healthcare providers. Rather than requiring healthcare providers and hospitals to be HIPAA compliant, the act extends HIPAA compliance to cover all entities storing, managing, recording, or transmitting Patient Health Information (PHI), according to the HIPAA Security Rule standards. HIPAA non compliance can be costly, resulting in fines ranging upto millions of dollars; even resulting in civil as well as criminal penalties.
