In an era where vast amounts of data are floating around and being accessed from a large network of devices, cloud file sharing security must be a top priority for any enterprise that collects personal or sensitive information. The threat of a data breach is an especially serious reality for those in industries where sensitive, confidential information is being collected from clients or patients. Healthcare professionals, in particular, should be keenly aware of the consequences that can occur when the security of patient records is left unchecked.
Any business handling private customer information must have a data security plan in place — of particular note is those storing credit card numbers. Retailers not only need a secure file transfer platform for their own internal records, they also need to be mindful of where they are housing information pertaining to their customer base. There is a level of trust among shoppers when they voluntarily pass their financial information along to stores to purchase an item or provide contact info for a loyalty or reward program. Retail businesses need to take every actionable measure possible to avoid data breaches and ensure the safekeeping of their clients’ information.
Beginning May 25, 2018, enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation will go into effect. Organizations across the globe conducting business in the EU will be impacted by this EU Parliament regulation, including but not limited to health care providers, media agencies, law firms and financial professionals. Businesses large and small need to prepare for changing regulations regarding the privacy of customer sensitive data, how and where it is stored, which devices it lives on and how it is accessed, lest they face significant violations leading to substantial fines.
