The Spotlight On Data Security

Why is there a spotlight on data security?  Data breaches plus identity theft equal liability.  Recall the recent data breach with Target.  Seventy million records were compromised along with 40 million cards.  This resulted in 100+ lawsuits and numerous investigations by AG’s, FTC, and more.

HIPAA related breaches are impacting more than 31  million individuals and includes class action law suits and government investigations.

Florida is the number one state for various types of fraud including identity theft, tax fraud, credit card, phone, utilities and more.  Identity theft equals damages.

Protect yourself.  Hire a reputable vendor to proactively protect your data.
