Data Privacy Best Practices for 2023 and Beyond
Data privacy concerns are not just for the big corporations – as a small business owner, your clients are expecting you to protect their data when they make a purchase from you. Cybercriminals are counting on you to make mistakes when sharing your information online that leave your data vulnerable to attack. What is even worse, if your devices are lost or stolen, your “IT guy” will often just tell you to call the police because the right tools aren’t in place to do anything about it. “I’ll just call my IT guy” is not the solution your business needs.
How bad could it really get? We recently met with a bookkeeping company who was hacked. The hackers accessed all of the QuickBooks accounts of their clients using a compromised staff account. With that access the hackers transferred funds from their clients' bank accounts into their accounts, effectively stealing a total of $52,000.
As a small business owner, you probably can’t afford to refund your clients $52,000 for your error. And beyond that, you’re likely to lose some of these clients long-term after this happens. Our free best practices guide helps to educate you on how you can avoid becoming a victim of a data breach.
