Under various data protection laws in 100+ countries & 47 states, a business MUST proactively report actual or suspected data loss within 24-72 hours.
Are You Protecting the PII of Your Employees and Customers?
Personally Identifiable Information (PII), represents the information your business has about your employees, customers or vendors that can identify an individual, and possibly lead to identity theft or fraud. It can be as obvious as their social security number or credit card information, to something as simple as an email address or phone number.
Data protection laws cover breach and consumer notification protocol. Your responsibility for data protection encompasses ALL paper records and electronic files containing PII, such as employee health information and records, customer names and addresses, as well as financial data of clients, employees and suppliers.
All businesses need to be prepared in the event a breach occurs. Proactive planning through professional records storage and records management solutions will minimize loss such as reputational damage, decreased sales, fines, and lawsuits.
What If I Fail To Report Data Loss?
It’s critical that you take the right steps to comply with all the rules and regulations for breach reporting and consumer notification, whether the breach is actual or suspected, regardless of the size of your business or how many records may have been compromised.
Federal and state agencies will not be lenient. Non-compliance can result in fines and penalties.
What Will the CSR Breach Reporting Service do for Me?
In the event of the actual or suspected data breach of PII, the CSR Breach Reporting Service reports to authorities and notifies consumers, as required.
Your call to the in-house CSR team of privacy professionals initiates a custom evaluation of your incident to determine if authorities and consumers must be notified. CSR files the necessary breach reports on your behalf, and consumer notification can be prepared with your input.
