Data Security and Small Businesses

Date: 03/27/2006 | Category: Business | Author: Diana Heeb Bivona

The Council of Better Business Bureaus (CBBB) and Privacy & American Business (P&AB) have teamed up to launch a new national education initiative geared toward helping small business owners improve their security and privacy readiness.

The Entitled Security & Privacy – Made Simpler initiative is designed to demystify the complexities of data security and give small businesses a non-technical roadmap to securing their customer data.  The program includes free easy-to-read security and privacy toolkits, with separate kits focused on customer and employee data protection.  The customer data kit is available now, and the employee kit will be available in the fall.

Included in the toolkit is information on:

Illustrations of low-tech and high-tech data theft from dumpster diving and employee theft to phishing and hacking…and steps to prevent;

Checklists for everyday security practices;

Common sense advice, such as “if you don’t absolutely need a piece of customer information, the best policy is, don’t collect it”; and

Practical guidance on whom to notify in the event of a data breach, from law enforcement to potentially-exposed customers.

The materials is available at www.bbb.org/securityandprivacy.
