It is not a question of if a data breach will threaten your small business, but when.
Each business is different. But small businesses are especially different. The same “best practices” that an enterprise has adopted may simply not be attainable for a small business, and yet small businesses face the same exact digital challenges that any business faces. That includes preparing for a data breach.
It is not a question of if a data breach will threaten your small business, but when. So in the spirit of is national small business week that runs April 30-May 6, 2017, I’ve pulled together a piece on data breach preparation that addresses the specific circumstances, needs, and reasonable starting points for small businesses.
If you are a small business looking to proactively prepare for a possible data breach, it would be great to hear about your challenges and triumphs. And if you are struggling to start or execute a data breach policy program, tell me a little bit about your challenges and we’ll talk about how I can help out.
