Help is on the way for small business owners who want to improve their ability to protect data.
The Council of Better Business Bureaus is teaming up with the Privacy and American Business think tank on an educational program to help small businesses lower their vulnerability to viruses and hacking.
The program, called "Security and Privacy Made Simpler," includes free, easy-to-read security and privacy tool kits, with separate kits focused on customer and employee data protection. The customer data kit is available now, and the employee kit will be out in the fall. The educational materials are accessible online at http://www.bbb.org/securityandprivacy.
