For many companies, collecting sensitive consumer and employee information is an essential part of doing business. It is your legal responsibility to take steps to properly secure or dispose of it. Financial data, personal information from children, and material derived from credit reports may raise additional compliance considerations. In addition, you may have legal responsibilities to victims of identity theft.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulates and oversees business privacy laws and policies that impact consumers. Check out the following guides from more information on how you can ensure you are compliant.
With new technology being released on what seems like a daily basis, it's understandable that businesses have a hard time keeping up. The next new this and the next new that might seem like a great addition to your business, but how do you know when to immediately embrace new technology or when to wait for the next release?
Often there's no clear-cut answer. For consumers, adopting a new technology is usually a low-risk behavior. If they buy something they don't like, they'll simply replace it with something different during their next purchase. It's a lot trickier for businesses, though. Rarely do they buy just one product at a time, so their purchases need to benefit the employees and the company as a whole.

When you think about the computing devices you'll be using in the future, desktop PCs probably don't come to mind. Sure, your very first computer was a desktop and they've been around forever, but surely the convenience and popularity of tablets, smartphones and notebooks are signaling the desktop's demise.
Or are they?
Turns out desktop PCs aren't going the way of the VCR just yet. Yes, smaller devices are more convenient and useful in many situations, but the desktop has its place, too. Instead of replacing desktops as primary computers, many are finding that the smaller, portable devices are more effective when they're used to supplement a more powerful, stationary desktop. It seems that desktop PCs aren't going anywhere-but their role is changing.
