As of April 2017, forty-eight states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have enacted legislation requiring private or governmental entities to notify individuals of security breaches of information involving personally identifiable information.
What information needs to be protected?
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is any data that can be used to identify an individual. Social security numbers, birthdates, health and financial information, credit card numbers and many other types of information are stolen every day. Any information that can be used to distinguish one person from another can make you and your associates vulnerable to identity theft and fraud. To properly secure the PII in your paper and electronic records, and remain compliant with breach reporting and consumer notification laws, you need sound breach management and breach reporting services in place.
How does CSR Readiness® help?
CSR Readiness® helps you review business practices and revise how you use and protect PII. In three simple steps, you will have a full assessment of where the PII exists in your organization, a set of best practices and policies to ensure security and compliance, and continual access that allows for ongoing input and monitoring.
What industries does CSR Readiness® cover and how?
Every industry is at risk of a data breach, but they can be prevented. Employee errors, loss of physical documents, misplaced electronic devices, malware, and hacking can result in the loss of data.
