Powerful – and very valuable – services, always ready when you need them
Breach Reporting Services are now an integral part of the information protection we offer our clients at Access. And that’s very good news for you, your business and your customers because it means that you are now protected from the headache and hassle of the many legal requirements to report the loss or breach of personally identifiable information to an ever-increasing number of authorities.
As your records and information management solutions provider, we are especially concerned about the protection of all your organization’s information whether or not the specific information is currently entrusted to our care.
It’s impossible to completely prevent data loss. Today, data loss is on the rise as technology, like laptops and USB drives, becomes more portable. Did you know that data theft and data loss, whether by accident or malicious intent, account for 75% of breaches? It’s no longer a matter of if, but when, your organization will be struck by a breach or loss of data.
Your responsibility for data protection encompasses ALL forms of personally identifiable information, such as employee Social Security numbers, health information and records, customer names and addresses as well as financial data of clients, employees and suppliers. Under data protection laws in 100+ countries and 46 states, a business MUST proactively report any actual or suspected data loss.
Delayed response to a breach can result in fines as well as civil, criminal and class action lawsuits, lost sales, imprisonment and all too often, eventual business closure. It’s critical to take the right steps to comply with all the rules and regulations to prevent further fallout. The time to prepare is before an incident occurs.
Access is taking the lead to prepare you to respond quickly to a data breach. Since the loss of customer and employee information can lead to identity theft, the #1 complaint to the FTC by consumers, you need to be ready to meet mandated requirements should a data breach occur.
