Protecting Personal Business Information

Personal business is a term used to describe the tasks or activities that are performed by a firm, person, or an individual on their own. Examples include managing finances, doing household chores, or keeping appointments. It can also mean the creation and management of a business that is based on the skills, interests and experience as an individual or sole proprietor.

While data privacy laws differ across countries and states but they generally have the same definitions of what constitutes personal information. The CCPA and Connecticut’s law for instance, define personal data as any information that is linked or reasonably connected to an identifiable individual and is not restricted to de-identified data or publicly available information. The CCPA also contains a separate category for sensitive personal information that needs more protection than any other type of data.

It’s important to know how much data is stored in your organization and where it’s kept. This can be accomplished by taking a comprehensive inventory on all documents, files, and storage devices. This should include all file cabinets, desktops, laptops, mobile devices, disks, flash drives and digital copiers. Also, don’t forget to look for places where sensitive data could be stored outside of your office, for example, employees’ homes or work-from-home computers, as well as other devices.

PII that is considered to be sensitive must be protected both during transit and when at rest, and only for as long as it is required for business. This includes biometrics, medical data included in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act(HIPAA) Unique identifiers such as passports, Social Security Numbers and employee personnel records.
