Gina Greenwood Comments on Data Breach Issues in Atlanta Business Chronicle


Last year's widespread customer information leak at giant retailer Target Corp. has become one of the prime examples of how unnerving and exhausting a data breach can be. But unlike big organizations that have the resources to combat the effects of data breaches, small companies are often limited financially and sometimes technologically. In this Atlanta Business Chronicle article, Gina Greenwood discusses ways small-business owners can protect their businesses and their data from devastating breaches.

"I would strongly recommend that the entrepreneur engage both a legal and IT consultant to assess the company's privacy and security risks," Ms. Greenwood said. "The company should also develop a compliance program complete with policies, procedures, training and monitoring tools to address all applicable state and federal privacy, security, consumer protection and breach notification laws. The company should also develop a risk management plan and an auditing plan and should implement appropriate security measures to protect company data from both internal and external breaches."
