Better Business Bureau To School Against Data Loss

Apparently, we’re not the only ones who notice that companies today can’t keep their fucking panties up around their waist when it comes to data security. The Council of Better Business Bureaus is trying to wise-up small businesses to the perils of securing their networks and locking down data.

From Consumer Affairs:

The BBB’s program is designed to demystify the complexities of data security and give small businesses a non-technical roadmap to securing their customer data.

The national program includes free, easy-to-read security and privacy toolkits, with separate kits focused on customer and employee data protection. The customer data kit is available now, and the employee kit will be released in the fall.

Great stuff. Now how about distributing these non-technical roadmaps to the companies like Citibank? After all, they’re the ones who really need to fucking wise up already.
