Is Your Liability Covered Should an Information Breach Occur?

Having a NAID Certified third-party provide a routine shredding service for your office or business is a great start to protecting your business and client information and reducing your liability. However, even more can - and should - be done to decrease your likelihood of a breach and to reduce your liability if a breach does occur.

Auditors and investigators don't simply look at what happened to cause a breach, they also look at what was done prior to said breach to prevent it, and this is where many companies get caught-up. The ability to produce documentation to an auditor or investigator that you as a company took every precaution to prevent a breach can mean the difference between a warning and a major fine or charges.

The most valuable asset you have in this process is your employees. Ensuring that each one of your employees is properly trained in your policies and understands the importance of proper information destruction, is vital to protecting your business and your clients.
