Businesses have an obligation to take reasonable security measures to ensure the integrity of sensitive private data – no matter where it may be stored or how it may be accessed. Symantec offers some advice to help IT execs on top of security issues.

Procedures for loss or theft of devices should also be in place. Policies must be communicated to all employees.
