Today's businesses are expected to have policies and procedures around the security, confidentiality, and integrity of the data they are responsible for.
There is no question that data breaches can happen to any business. And if a data breach does occur, the organization will likely face client fallout, regulatory scrutiny, liability expense, and reputation risk. Every business, regardless of size or industry, should ensure that it has deployed appropriate and legally compliant data security measures.
To demonstrate conformity with applicable standards, organizations need to consider adopting a comprehensive written information security program (WISP). The WISP must contain certain minimum administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect personal information.
