Cyber liability and Data Breach Insurance Consulting

Large Organizations are Small Organizations Too

Large public and private organizations are comprised of big, medium and small organizational components. Sharing a common understanding and unified messaging is critical to delivering business/mission value and security. 

Small and mid-size businesses are the largest group of employers. Thinking of large organizations separately from this group ignores very important opportunities to increase business value and security because they are all connected and interdependent.

RightExposure helps small businesses and large businesses

Problem Statement

  • Small businesses have limited capabilities, capacities and awareness to properly protect confidential information of their own and others in their business Eco-system.
  • All organizations depend on members of their business Eco-system to stay in business so they can continue to be provided with products and services they need.
  • All organizations depend on each other to protect confidential information shared intentionally and exposed to them unintentionally.
  • The assessment of business risks including cyber is an important step in awareness and ability to take action to protect the business.
  • Protecting documents associated with assessments such as security gap reports, security plans, plan of action milestones, and others is critical.

FTC Guidance for Cyber

The Federal Trade Commission easy to follow guidance for small businesses. 
Note:
 The FTC is going to update and release new guidance Oct 18th.

Is Your Business Prepared for an Emergency?
Is Your Data?

When an emergency strikes, your business’s most vulnerable asset may not be in the stockroom or warehouse. It could be the data that has been central to your success.  The FTC has six steps you can take to help protect your company’s information from the unpredictable.  

Secure Paper, Physical Media, and Devices

federal trade commission

High-profile hackers grab the headlines. But some data thieves prefer old school methods – rifling through file cabinets, pinching paperwork, and pilfering devices like smartphones and flash drives. As your business bolsters the security of your network, don’t let that take attention away from how you secure documents and devices.

FTC law enforcement actions, closed investigations, and experiences we’ve heard from businesses demonstrate the wisdom of adopting a 360° approach to protecting confidential data. As Start with Security suggests, securing paper, physical media, and devices is an important part of that strategy.
