Data Breach Support
Are your clients prepared for a data breach?
Breaches often go undetected. However, be aware that 60% of small to medium size businesses, after a data breach, are closed within 18 months. Are your clients prepared to deal with the incident if a data breach is suspected? Do they have the proper plan of action in place and a designated representative to contact immediately?
What is a data breach?
A data breach is an incident where personal information is compromised. In the small and medium business community, there can often be confusion as to what constitutes a breach of data. To add to the confusion, laws vary from state to state and between countries. Damage can include loss of revenue, loss of reputation, lost customers, and legal ramifications. According to the Ponemon IBM Report, the average cost of a data breach is $146/record compromised. How your clients respond to a data breach can set their business apart from others and increase the trust of their current and future customers looking for a trustworthy and secure business that takes cyber-privacy seriously.
