Each week, I try to remove mention of data breaches from Small Regular, No Sugar!, but there just seems to be another major breach that underscores the importance of your business being PCI Compliant and your customer’s information safeguarded.  This week’s glaring example came in the reports that Home Depot was the victim of an international data hack that compromised the data of many of their customers.  Although as I write this, Home Depot has yet to acknowledge that a breach occurred, but the reports of it alone should be sufficient to make franchise owners want to learn more about how to defend against these breaches.  Again, we will be addressing this important and extremely timely issue at the DDIFO National Conference when ANX eBusiness Group presents: “Cyber Secure: Protecting Your Customer Info – And Your Business“.  Are you completely safe from hackers?
