WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW SECURITY BREACH NOTIFICATION LAW
It’s Monday morning and one of your employees notifies you that they lost their laptop at a Starbucks over the weekend, apologizing profusely. Aside from the cost and inconvenience of buying a new laptop, could you be on the hook for bigger costs, and should you notify all your clients? Maybe, depending on where you live and what type of data you had stored on that laptop.
AN EMERGING TREND IN BUSINESS LAW
Today most states are starting to aggressively enforce data breach and data security laws that lay the responsibility of securing critical business data directly to the owner or CEO! Definitely medical and financial records such as credit card numbers, credit scores and bank account numbers, but also addresses and phone numbers, social security numbers, birthdays and in some cases purchase history—information that almost every single company normally keeps on their clients.
No Longer is "WE DID OUR BEST" an Acceptable Answer
An epidemic of cyber criminals are working daily to hack your systems, and with your employees accessing more and more confidential client data, there is no known way to absolutely, positively guarantee you won’t have a data breach. However, your efforts to put into place 2nd generation cyber prevention tools and rock solid best practices to protect your data will go a long way to help you avoid hefty fines. Here are some basic things to look at to avoid being labeled irresponsible.
- Managing access. Who can access the confidential information you store in your business? Is this information easily accessible by everyone in your company? What is your policy about taking data out of the office on mobile devices?
- IT security and passwords. The more sensitive the data, the higher the level of security you need. Are your passwords easy to crack? Is the data encrypted? Secured behind a strong firewall? If not, why?
- Training. One of the biggest causes for data breaches is the human element: employees who accidentally download viruses and malware that allow hackers easy access. Do you have a data security policy? A password policy? Do you have training to help employees understand how to use e-mail and the Internet responsibly?
- Physical security. IIt’s becoming more common for thieves to break into offices and steal servers, laptops and other digital devices. Additionally, paper contracts and other physical documents containing sensitive information should be locked up or scanned and encrypted.
The bottom line is this: Data security is something that EVERY Business Owner is now responsible for, and not addressing this Important issue has consequences that go beyond the legal aspect; it can seriously harm your reputation with clients. So be smart about this. Talk to your attorney about your legal responsibility.
