Regardless of industry, organizations are responsible to protect and secure their customers’ information. Information management is the process of protecting an organization’s data in terms of:
· Classification and handling.
· Document and records management.
· Sensitive physical information.
To reduce the risk of customer information being jeopardized, organizations often establish a separation of duties to ensure employees only have access to the information they need to do their jobs. Organizations need to abide by several U.S. privacy laws and regulations to be in compliance and to protect consumers.
