How Secure Are You?
As evidenced by the Galveston case I posted on yesterday, this story from the FTC
should serve as a wake-up call that you need to make sure your employees aren't using your work computers to access peer-to-peer file sharing for their personal stuff. That can provide a link, intentionally or not, for someone to access your system and potentially get into your customers' data.
I've been working on lots of policies and procedures over the last few weeks (get yours updated if you haven't already), and most of mine include policies on employees not using email or internet access for non-business purposes. If your policies say this, now may be a good time to reiterate it and start enforcing it. The lesson from the FTC couldn't be more clear. . . .
