4 types of information that needs data protection - Embassy RMS

October 29, 2019

 

At Embassy RMS, our industrial grade equipment shreds sheets of paper to strips so thin that it is impossible to put them back together. Are your employees aware of the difference between confidential and personal information? Here are four types of information that need data protection to ensure the safety of your company and your employees.

 

1. Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
Personally identifiable information (PII) is information identifies, locates or contacts a person by name, address, birth date, phone number, and personal identification numbers. PII is also sold to marketing firms or companies that specialize in spam campaigns. Additionally, identity thieves exploit your information to create new identities and steal money.  
 
2. Data Protected by Privacy Laws

This includes governments, public or private organizations, and other individuals that store and use personal and confidential information. There are many privacy laws imposed by the federal government to protect your information. Non-compliance of these privacy laws result in large fines and even jail.

 
3. Corporate Information

Corporate information that may pose a risk to a company if a competitor or the general public gets a hold of it must be protected. External information that must be protected includes trade secrets, acquisition plans, financial data, and supplier and customer information; Internal information that must be protected included higher-management correspondence, contracts, and HR information such as medical records, payroll and performance appraisals.

 

4. Financial Information

Banking, billing, and insurance information must be protected. This includes credit and debit card information and data that can be used to hack accounts and process financial transactions.
