Protect Your Customer Data – Or Else

Smallbiztechnology: Protect Your Customer Data – Or Else

One way data can leak is through outgoing e-mail. ComplianceSafe is a new product that helps protect small businesses against inadvertent disclosure of private or sensitive data.

“Large businesses have large systems in place to monitor and block unauthorized information from leaving their companies. But even with these systems in place it’s hard to monitor every key stroke that your employees are typing in email messages.

However, you should be concerned.

Having personal or financial information of your customers (or employees) released (by accident or intentionally) could be an embarrassment but it could also be a criminal liability. Many of your industries are regulated and you could be held criminally liable for what information is publicly released. For those of you not in regulated industries you could still be liable.”
