Confidentiality measures for small business data protection


When it comes to keeping important info safe at local businesses, here’s some surprising info: one out of three small- and medium-sized business leaders don’t fully trust their team with confidential stuff. Why? It could be as simple as Sally in Sales keeping her password taped to her computer screen. Or maybe it’s because they have had bad experiences in the past.

But here’s the deal: Just trusting your team isn’t enough to keep data safe. We think the real issue isn’t that employees can’t be trusted. It’s more about not giving them the right training and tools to handle sensitive info securely.

So, what’s the fix?

Start with company-wide training. It’s like giving your team a toolkit with skills and tricks to spot and handle potential problems. A well-trained crew is like a shield for your business, making it way harder for bad stuff to happen.

Then there’s the tech side of things. Lots of local businesses admit they don’t have the right tools to protect their important info. That’s where Robertson Technology Group Ltd. comes in. We can set up your systems so only the right people can get to the data they need.

But we don’t stop there. We also help create solid rules about who can share what info and what happens when someone leaves the team. It’s like setting up safety rules for everyone.

Here’s the bottom line: Simply trusting your team isn’t enough when it comes to keeping info safe. But with the right training and tools, you can turn your employees from potential risks into your business’s superheroes, keeping everything secure and sound.
