Data and security breaches are only becoming more common. In the past few years, Equifax admitted that 147 million of its accounts had been exposed, and Marriott reported that the data of roughly 500 million guests had been compromised — and that’s only to name a few.

With that in mind, Madeline Duva shares some key best practices and tips for securing any organization. These processes will help you protect your teams, funds and data.
