With the rapid development of digital and information technology, businesses of every size now collect, process and warehouse all sorts of personal information with a variety of technologies, from USB drives to tablets to the cloud. The laws and regulations that govern the handling of personal information are numerous, complex, vary by location and are constantly changing. If a business does not take appropriate care to protect against prohibited access to or loss of personal information, it can be subjected to significant fines and, more importantly, considerable damage to its reputation.
