October is CyberSecurity Privacy Awareness Month! Information Managers is celebrating by hosting our annual 15 Day Privacy Challenge. The 15 Day Privacy Challenge is a fun, no cost educational opportunity on privacy and security.
Privacy Challenge #1
Take a quick look at your email address book: how many Jennifers and Toms do you see? Even uncommon names can show up more than once, and it’s easy to send an email to the wrong person by mistake.
Mistakes happen. But from a privacy perspective, it’s important that our email recipients know what we want them to do should we make an error of this sort. So it’s vital to include some guidelines in the form of a confidentiality notice.
Consider the following elements of a well-crafted confidentiality notice:
- Encourage the recipient to inform you should an error occur.
- Thank them for letting you know about any mistakes.
- State that you believe their privacy is important, and that you will take every step necessary to correct the error to prevent it from happening again.
Does your email signature block and fax cover sheet include these points?
Do you want to enjoy the benefits of the internet without the fear of cyber attacks and privacy breaches?
Join us for the Free 15 Day Privacy Challenge for more tips, tools, and templates that you can use right away!
We are proud to be a Champion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month #CyberAware.
