Securing the data of your company and your customers is vital to business success. In today’s world of identity theft and data thieves, many small companies are not prepared to handle the responsibility they have for sensitive data.
Businesses must understand the importance of providing secure storage for their customers’ data. This is especially important following the disposal of computers and storage hardware. The results of improper data management can be catastrophic to a company.

Others feel that they can protect their data with simple common sense, often being unaware of the sophisticated methods fraudulent people use to retrieve data.
