Why Your Business Requires Security

The States and Federal Identity Theft and Privacy Protection Laws now require businesses, agencies and organizations of all sizes to protect all personal information they store, and report to all their customers whenever a breach occurs. The financial ramifications after having a data breach can be very substantial to both present and future business. In some many cases a company never does recover from a breach and is forced to close down. Currently, the average cost on a company is $3.7M per incident.

Amazon / Google Spam


But it looks like an Amazon ad. It’s Not!

Beware of a email that looks like an product selection or monthly deal from Amazon. There are many places to click to see pictures, unsubscribe, etc. It is spam to get access to your computer.

Businesses today are using more online shopping carts and online marketing services to inform customers about their products. As spammers start coping the look and feel of your emails then they cause everyone to erase anything that come electronically from any company. Legitimateor not. I can’t tell you how many deals I have been offered by companies simply because I don’t trust the email. And some of these deals were legit.

So if you do use auto-responders only use ones from reputable companies.

Individuals, if in doubt always check the links by hovering you mouse over it and reading the URLdata. If it does no look right, don’t click. If by chance you have, be sure you have a strong anti-virus program so block access and protect your computer and data.
