  • Useful Cybersecurity Guides [from the FTC]

    Most companies keep sensitive personal information in
    their files—names, Social Security numbers, credit card,
    or other account data—that identifies customers
    or employees.

    This information often is necessary to fill orders, meet
    payroll, or perform other necessary business functions.
    However, if sensitive data falls into the wrong hands, it
    can lead to fraud, identity theft, or similar harms. Given
    the cost of a security breach—losing your customers’
    trust and perhaps even defending yourself against a
    lawsuit—safeguarding personal information is just plain
    good business.

    Some businesses may have the expertise in-house to
    implement an appropriate plan. Others may find it helpful to
    hire a contractor. Regardless of the size—or nature—of your
    business, the principles in this brochure will go a long way
    toward helping you keep data secure.

    The Federal Trade Commission has published 2 useful guides that I’ve shared here for your reference.
