If you open a lot of web sites every day you will be familiar with the challenge caused by having 20-30 tabs open in a browser and navigating between the tabs, especially because there is no differentiation between a tab that runs a web app and a tab that is simply a web site you opened while performing research or just casual browsing. You could of course close a tab once you are done with it but who has the time to do that?
Creating a snapshot of an Amazon Web Services EBS volume is a simple method to back up your AWS instances. For more details on AWS snapshots make sure to read this.
Running a Content Search is fairly easy from within the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center but sometimes it will make sense to drop down into Powershell to run more complex queries.
Although it does not replace enterprise grade backups systems like Veeam or StorageCraft, Windows Server Backup works quite well for basic backup tasks.

Credentials stored in plain text format in a Powershell script is a security issue that needs to be avoided. This Technote describes a way to save the password in a file as a secure string which can be read back into a script for authentication.
The main reason why Google Drive works so well as a Corporate Knowledge Base is because of the world class search functionality that comes along with anything Google. Posting articles is easy, just drag them into the appropriate folder, or use Google Docs to create them directly in the desired location using almost any mobile device. I prefer a simple folder structure, in fact, you may want to consider no folder structure at all and rely totally on search to find things. That has worked great for me for years with Gmail.
Even with multiple lines of defense in place, someone in your network is inevitably going to click on that attachment or link prompting them to open that scan or document they requested (if they would briefly stop and think about it, they actually did not scan or request any document) and the next thing you know every document on the shared drive is encrypted.

I recently had to write a simple Powershell script to upload Work Order data from a Maintenance Department stored in .csv format to a Sharepoint 2013 list (We wrote a cool Filemaker Go app to record the Work Orders on iPads). The script first deletes the contents of the list before uploading (Function: Delete_List). What I do not like about this approach is that the ID continues to increment and does not reset to 1. I am still looking for a solution for that.
