Data Security Review:
Time to Review Your WISP
Welcome to Issue 8 of the Data Security Review
Hello again,
As usual, summer flew by. As I sit at my desk waiting for the leaves to begin to turn, I am barraged by paperwork. With the beginning of the new school year come all of the forms that need to be filled out: emergency contact, physicals, bus routes etc. All important for a successful, secure school year. As a business owner, it is a reminder that now is the time to review our written information security policy (WISP). In accordance with most regulatory requirements, we recommend that an annual review be performed to ensure security and privacy policies and programs are up to date and current with any business or regulatory changes. Just think of it as another necessary piece of paperwork.
