Preventing The Possibility Of A Data Breach

Preventing The Possibility Of A Data Breach

These tips can help you minimize the risk of a data breach at your business.

Today’s business owners don’t just have to worry about physical theft, they also have to think about protecting their digital data.

In addition to your cyber security insurance, use these tips to protect your business against the risk of a data breach.

  • Take the time to inform your team about the risk of a data breach. Teach them about phishing scams so they can avoid getting lured in, and make sure everyone in your company password protects their data.
  • Know your risk. Understand what would be legally required of you after a data breach, including notifying all customers whose information was compromised and offering them credit monitoring services.
  • Assemble your team to handle a breach in advance. Name personnel from your IT, legal, public relations, and risk management teams who will be prepared to spring into action should you experience a breach.

These tips will help you minimize your risk for a data breach, but hackers are moving faster and faster and might find a way to circumvent your safeguards. If they do, your cyber security insurance can step in to protect your business.
