According to Jorge Rey, director of information security at CPA firm Kaufman, Rossin & Co., “this situation still begs the question, ‘are you sure your data is secure?’ If the S.E.C. incidentally risked the security of imperative information, then how can you be sure your third party providers are not putting your data at risk?”
Another surprising move by the S.E.C. is its recent disclosure guidance for public companies to disclose any potential data security breaches having effect on the bottom line, according to the released Cybersecurity disclosure guidance. Therefore, the public will be forewarned about possible compromised data which will be beneficial for investors and the like.
Public, private, large, small - whatever the case may be, there are necessary precautions to be taken to ensure that imperative data is safe and secure.
