How and Why to Protect Your Business in the Year of the Data Leak
There has never been a more important time for businesses to pay attention to the privacy and security of their digital footprint and to manage risks associated with collecting and using consumer data.
When data is transferred to a third party or that party is granted access, a “data leak” may result. When that data is misused, such a leak may lead to a flood of problems for your business.
Data security breaches have rightfully been front and center in the media for years — phishing, business email compromise, malware, ransomware, DDOS and other external attacks regularly cripple even large tech-savvy corporations. Unfortunately, lawmakers and businesses find it difficult to keep pace with evolving data security threats. Often businesses and the individuals who run them fail to take proactive measures to curtail their risk until it’s too late.
