It is an understatement to say that businesses cannot function without technology. And, when businesses do not keep up with advancements and developments in technology, they get left behind, allowing their competitors to move ahead. Despite its benefits, technology also comes with a set of distinct challenges. Deceptive people have found ways to take advantages of glitches in business technology, always seeking to exploit weaknesses in order to commit crimes. This is the case with identity theft, security breaches, and the misuse of sensitive client and patient information and data. In many instances, those clients affected by the security breaches hold liable the businesses where the breach was initiated. This has resulted in a number of lawsuits. It is therefore critical that companies keep their information secure. Learn how you can protect your business today for HIPAA compliance assessments in Los Angeles.
