ID Theft for Business

Is your company keeping information secure?

Are you taking steps to protect personal information? Safeguarding sensitive data in your files and on your computers is just plain good business. After all, if that information falls into the wrong hands, it can lead to fraud or identity theft. A sound data security plan is built on five key principles:

  1. Take stock. Know what personal information you have in your files and on your computers.
  2. Scale down. Keep only what you need for your business.
  3. Lock it. Protect the information in your care.
  4. Pitch it. Properly dispose of what you no longer need.
  5. Plan ahead. Create a plan to respond to security incidents.

To learn more about how you can implement these principles in your business, watch the video. You'll see and hear about practical steps your business can take to protect personal information. After you experience the tutorial, we hope you'll take advantage of the other resources on this site to educate your employees and customers.
