Be Prepared for a Data Breach With eRisk Hub®

eRisk Hub

More than half of small businesses throughout the United States experienced a data breach, according to a recent study from Hartford Steam Boiler. Yet only one-third of those businesses notified the people affected by the breach, even though the majority of states require that individuals be contacted when their private information is exposed. This study not only demonstrates the need for data compromise insurance, but reinforces the need for businesses to have access to up-to-date information on how best to respond to a data breach. EMC policyholders can Count on EMC® to provide both.
