When it comes to fraud, businesses are as much a target as consumers. Many companies have sensitive personal information in their files (names, Social Security numbers, credit card, or other account data) identifying customers or employees. This information is often used to fill orders, meet payroll or perform other business functions. If this data is stolen, it can lead to fraud, identity theft, or other concerns.
Security breach costs can go beyond the financial, and may include losing customer trust, or even defending yourself against lawsuits. Keeping private information safe is good business. In this section, we provide suggestions to help you protect your business from fraud.
