How Do You Protect the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of Your Employees and Customers?
PII is any information that can identify an individual and possibly lead to identity theft or fraud. All businesses have PII, it comes from customers, employees, and vendors and is usually found in every department. It can be as obvious as a social security number or just an email address or phone number. Breaches of PII can come in many forms, from something as simple as losing a wallet or misplacing a document to high-end hacking.
Protect Yourself and Your Business
Many laws cover the retention and/or destruction of PII, breach and consumer notification protocol. Your responsibility for data protection encompasses all paper records and electronic files containing PII, no matter where or how it happened.
