Next, ensure that employees who handle sensitive information or control critical systems are aware of legal, regulatory or commercial requirements for security, including the consequences of failing to meet them. One example is data protection and privacy legislation, which requires everyone handling sensitive, personal data to safeguard it according to strict principles. A further example is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which requires retailers who process payment cards to:

  • Build and maintain a secure network
  • Protect cardholder data
  • Maintain a vulnerability management program
  • Implement strong access control measures
  • Regularly monitor and test networks
  • Maintain an information security policy

Small enterprises are the engine of our economy, generating innovation, employment and wealth, so your security matters. Data breaches are bad for business, so every enterprise needs security. In the past, this was expensive, because security products were designed for companies with deep pockets and teams of experts. But that’s changed. New cloud-based services are fast to deploy, safe and easy to use. What’s more, they’re even more affordable.

With growing demands from customers and regulators for security, now is a good time to invest in security. Leading cloud-based security services deliver a professional level of security assurance in a form that fits the circumstances and pockets of small businesses.
