A single data breach can affect millions of people at once and cost your business millions of dollars. Yahoo’s data breach in 2016 that affected 500 million customers cost the company $350 million because Verizon was no longer willing to pay full price to buy Yahoo after the breach.
These costs can quickly add up, resulting in thousands (in some cases millions) of dollars lost due to inefficient security precautions. Unfortunately, it is no longer a matter of if, but more so a matter of when your business will be hit with a data breach. For this reason, it is vital for you to prevent such chaos with professional data destruction services.
Keeping Data Breach Threats at Bay
How can you safeguard your company to avoid losing an extensive amount of money due to these threats? Protect your data in every way you can.
Shred paper documents when it is time. Destroy electronic data sufficiently by shredding computer hard drives. And always make sure you get a certificate of destruction that details the time and location of your shredding for your records.
While implementing some of these security measures can cost you time and money, the amount of time and money you would lose as a result of a breach is much more costly in comparison.
