A data breach is a security incident in which sensitive, protected or confidential information, business records or data media is copied, transmitted, viewed, stolen or used by an individual unauthorized to do so (including a disgruntled employee).
Incidents range from purposeful attack to careless disposal of hard-copy business records or data media storage. Millions of business records including confidential or sensitive personal or corporate information were involved in security breaches in the United States last year alone.
The departure of a trusted staff member with access to sensitive information can become a data breach if the staff member retains access to the data subsequent to termination of the trust relationship.
Isn't it time to protect your valued business records in a “Trusted Environment” where only authorized individuals can access them.
