Being a business owner in this era, hopefully you recognize that customer data has become more and more precious. Hackers are doing all they can to exploit businesses for their customer data, which is not limited to phishing, malware, or ransomware anymore; hackers have found ways to test the morals of your employees, too. Protecting your company against data breach isn’t a “hope it doesn’t happen to us” thing; you need to take steps to establish the security of the data you harbor. Here are a few tips to ensure the safety of your customer data.
1. Protect Customer Data Like You Protect Your Money
You wouldn’t give just anyone in your organization the passwords and account information to your business checking accounts, would you? Certainly not! It’s time you start treating your customer data like that too. To safeguard this information, you should allow only trusted key-members of your organization to have access to your customer information. In fact, for some industries, like health care, your restricting access to patient data is already a legal requirement.
2. Commit to Protect
With so many competitors in the market, as a business owner, you need to do something that will encourage a customer to buy from you instead of from the competitor. These days, that looks like differentiating through data protection. Your committing to protect your customers’ data is essential to gaining and retaining customers. People will not do business with you if they feel their private or identifying information is at stake. That’s where LibertyID can help.
