Lock your doors — and your data — before vacation

Now that we are on the back end of summer, many people are heading out on holiday before the work (and cool weather) of fall sets in. Just as you prepare your home against a break-in before heading out, may we also suggest you prepare your personal data for your own protection.

That may sound like overkill at first, but consider that data breaches are on a record pace this year and what happens with sensitive data once it’s stolen. Just as you lock doors, turn on light timers and set a house alarm so you can relax while away, so too should you run a quick check to make sure you aren’t leaving any sensitive data exposed in your cloud accounts.

And we mean quick. Marshal is lightweight and fast, so scanning your Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive accounts for exposed Social Security or credit card numbers literally only takes minutes.

If there’s any sensitive data being stored or shared, Marshal will uncover it so you can take the appropriate next steps. And with your personal data more secure, you can enjoy your vacation.
