International Data Privacy Day is Monday

Time for some tips to keep your company (and your employees) safe online --

Are your employees trained to maintain company privacy standards?

Conduct employee training on privacy as it relates to employment, helping employees learn how to protect the privacy of clients’ and customers’ personal information and teaching employees how to manage their own privacy at work.  Data Privacy Day is a good opportunity to send out an email reminder.

Do you remind your employees to make their passwords long, strong and unique?

Making passwords long and strong, with a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, along with changing them routinely and keeping them private are the easiest and most effective steps your employees can take to protect your data.
