Identity Theft and Businesses

The following Ebook is for business owners. By the way, we are defining business owners as including anyone in for profit businesses, not for profit or government organizations, as well as any executives, risk managers, compliance or human resource officers, or anyone else who has a vested interest in the success of the organization. If you are not a business owner, this section may not be for you, but it may tell you what to expect from your employer. This section is primarily focused on what business owners need to know about the risks that they face and what they should do to reduce their liability and to protect their business, their employees and their customers. It also covers what they should do if and when they lose data.

1. Data Loss and Identity Theft – The Same but Different

As a business owner, your interests are far different than the average consumer when it comes to Identity Theft and Data Loss. And the more that you read the news or watch the media, the more likely you are to be concerned.

It is very important to understand that Data Loss does not necessarily mean Identity Theft. This may seem like a relatively obvious statement to you, but many people think or act as if they are the same (if only so they can use it as the basis for a class action lawsuit). While it is true that data loss can lead to Identity Theft, more often than not, the loss of data has less to do with the data that is being stolen than it does with the media on which the data was being stored.

The first thing to understand is how likely you are to lose data. To date, there have been two excellent studies -- one completed in 2006 by the Ponemon Institute, and a second commissioned in 2007 by McAfee -- that have looked at the problem of data loss in business today. Both studies included companies of many different sizes and from different industries, culminating in findings that, for a business owner, are scarier than any ghost story.

The Ponemon Institute conducted an independent survey entitled U.S. Survey: Confidential Data as Risk, which started with the following paragraph that pretty much says it all:

A primary reason corporate data security breaches occur is because companies do not know where sensitive or confidential business information resides within the network or enterprise systems. This lack of knowledge coupled with insufficient controls over data stores can pose a serious threat for both businesses and governmental organizations. Moreover, the danger doesn’t stop at the network but includes employees’ and contractors’ laptop computers and other portable storage devices.The examples of risks from this survey are pretty clear. It means that we’ve all become so used to handling personal information as part of our jobs that we often forget how important it is to that person. Since we handle it routinely, we eventually lose our sensitivity to it and become careless. It only takes one mistake to cause a data loss.

The McAfee study was completed by Datamonitor "to measure IT
