In our increasingly technological world it’s difficult to overstate the danger of transferring digital data. Employers who think their data is of no interest to hackers or rogue employees, better think again! Hackers and rogue employees do not discriminate. If they want your data they will get it and it’s not a question of ‘if’ but “when’ a breach will occur. What is your plan of action; can you anwser the following questions?
- What will it cost if your data is breached?
- What are you required to do by state and federal privacy laws that are in effect once you have a breach?
- Will you be subject to any fines or penalties because of the breach?
- Are you financially prepared for the costs of a breach to come directly off your bottom line?
