Large retailers are not the only businesses that have an obligation to protect their customers’ data. Smaller retailers are increasingly encountering the effects of a data breach. The results range from compromise of client or customer data to third-party control over that data. Protecting your customers’ information not only shields you from financial liability, but also from substantial reputational harm. Thankfully, you can take reasonable precautions to help protect the security and privacy of your and your customers’ information.
