DATA PRIVACY:


KEEPING EMPLOYEE & CUSTOMER INFO SECURE


Most dealerships keep sensitive personal information on file – names, Social Security numbers, credit card, or other account data – that identifies their customers or employees. This information often is neces- sary to fill orders, meet payroll or perform other necessary business functions.


However, if this sensitive data falls into the wrong hands, it can lead to fraud, identity theft or more. Given the cost of a security breach – losing customer trust, potential lawsuits and disruptions to normal business operations – safeguarding personal information is just plain good business.


According to the Federal Trade Commission, a sound data security plan is built on five key principles: 1. Take stock. Know what personal information you have in your files and on your computers. 2. Scale down. Keep only what you need for your business. 3. Lock it. Protect the information that you keep. 4. Pitch it. Properly dispose of what you no longer need. 5. Plan ahead. Create a plan to respond to security incidents.


Regardless of the size of your business, these principles can go a long way toward helping you keep data secure.
