Data breaches are scary. The fact that breaches are becoming less of a rarity and are now more sweeping and devastating in their scope is even more alarming. In this day and age, the majority of businesses conduct a vast portion of their communications, ordering, and services provided online. They may store data and client information on an unprotected server or in the Cloud. Surprisingly, the vast majority of businesses don’t have insurance to cover any damage caused by theft of data – a shocking 95% of America’s small businesses do not have cyber insurance (otherwise known as CLIC) according to a recent survey. Guess who does?
MJW EA & Company is very concerned – you could even say relentless – when it comes to protecting our clients and their information. We have taken a number of steps to ensure our clients can feel safe; whether you’re electronically submitting information to us or we’re sending information to you, here’s what we’re doing:
- Our data files (your information) are encrypted
- Files sent via email are password protected
- Our website now has an SSL certificate and two options for secure document exchange between our clients and our staff.
And of course, we have Cyber Liability Insurance Coverage.
