Privacy Issues – Business protecting information

leave a comment »

All businesses have to protect client and employee information. You face lawsuits and, depending on your business, the possibility of regulatory action against you if you are an attorney, medical provider, or other target class.

One little item that many non-techie business owners don’t consider is that copiers and printers now have memories. It’s possible that your copier or printer is storing everything you have every copied or printed through it.

Before you sell, donate, or just dispose of your copier or printer, make sure you erase the memory just as you would the memory on a computer. Otherwise, you could see your private information, or a client’s, floating around the web.

If you have a question about insurance for these breaches, give us a call at 1-800-548-2329
