Each business is different. But small businesses are especially different. The same “best practices” that an enterprise has adopted may simply not be attainable for a small business, and yet small businesses face the same exact digital challenges that any business faces. That includes preparing for a data breach.

It is not a question of if a data breach will threaten your small business, but when. So in the spirit of is national small business week that runs April 30-May 6, 2017, I’ve pulled together a piece on data breach preparation that addresses the specific circumstances, needs, and reasonable starting points for small businesses.

If you are a small business looking to proactively prepare for a possible data breach, it would be great to hear about your challenges and triumphs. And if you are struggling to start or execute a data breach policy program, tell me a little bit about your challenges and we’ll talk about how I can help out.
