Keep it safe
When your clients trust you with their sensitive data, whether it is credit card information, health data or personal information, you must keep it as safe as possible. The best way is to encrypt the information and only print it out when necessary. No matter how the information is stored, you must ensure that it will not be exposed to unauthorized persons.
If confidential information leaks out, it can have serious consequences for your workplace in terms of fines and compensations as well as damage to reputation.
- Make sure your clients’ data is not accessible on an unlocked computer or unsecured printouts
- Never leave data where it can get lost or stolen
- Ensure other clients don’t accidentally get access to private data when doing business with you
