Do you know what you're liable for?

Do you handle sensitive customer data?

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act requires companies that offer consumers financial products or services like loans, financial or investment advice, or insurance to safeguard sensitive data - including devices. Additionally, prior to allowing a service provider access to customer personal information, the organization must take reasonable steps to ensure that the service provider is capable of maintaining appropriate safeguards.

The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) requires organizations to dispose of data contained in consumer reports and records in a way that is reasonable and appropriate to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the information. The FTC also encourages those who dispose of any records containing a consumer's personal or financial information to take similar protective measures.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that covered entities must have in place policies and procedures regarding the transfer, removal, disposal, and re-use of electronic media, to ensure appropriate protection of electronic protected health information.

Lack of sufficient controls for devices and media is one of the top 5 most common sources of breaches, according to Marylou King (former official with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of General Counsel).

The New Omnibus Rule could increase the likelihood that university hospitals and other health care providers will face liability for conduct by business partners and sub-contractors.

This is significant since it is estimated that these business partners, rather than the health care providers themselves, are responsible for more than 60% of HIPAA violations.

FTC's Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) applies to companies that collect personal information from children under 13 (such as social media sites or other websites/apps that are used by children.

Data breaches are a serious matter, civil and criminal penalties resulting from lack of due diligence can do significant harm to your brand reputation, and bottom line.

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA)

 was enacted to help clean up releases of hazardous substances into the environment. It authorizes the federal government to demand and collect cleanup costs from all companies that are deemed to have contributed to the hazardous situation. If an initial polluter is unable to pay the clean-up costs of their pollution (for instance a recycler), the government can seek clean-up costs from firms deemed to have contributed to that pollution (businesses disposing of retired IT assets).

Your business can help held liable for improper disposal of hazardous materials. Choosing a certified recycling facility protects your business.

Any company that works with financial, legal or medical information must properly dispose of data.
