Many companies today are specifically required to provide certain types of security regarding their data. These generally have to do with privacy or financial issues. Doctors, lawyers, therapists, financial institutions are often required by law or by their licenses to have safeguards in place to protect against data breaches.
Sidebar – You may also now purchase insurance to protect you against losses due to data breaches, including liability.
While many MSP (Managed Service Providers) can help you with information compliance procedures, firewalls, and other security measures, you might want to seek out consultants that are specifically trained in the legal and other requirements for your industry.
I would be interested in having someone in the INFORMATION COMPLIANCE field provide more content for this page.
