Data breach - those two words can (and should) scare the heck out of business owners. It is everywhere in the news. I think on some level, people are just throwing their hands up in the air at this point. However, we don't want our customers to go through this experience - no one wants the CIA showing up at their back door or having their funds frozen because of a suspected breach.

- What Can You Expect When a Breach Occurs? What Are the Steps?
- Who Is Liable?
- Best Practices to Prevent Breaches and Mitigate Liability
- Using a QIR (Qualified Integrators and Resellers) Certified Reseller
