As cyberattacks are becoming more common throughout the world, companies need to make sure they have the necessary processes in place to protect against these attacks. Recently, there have been several ransomware attacks in our industry, impacting businesses that don’t have safeguards in place. Impacted businesses face days of closure as well as a total loss of their data.
At Family Financial Centers, our locations maintain highly confidential databases so protecting this information against cyber threats is our number one priority. This is why all FFC locations are required to have anti-virus programs on their POS systems. Additionally, their POS database must be remotely hosted through our software partner, Answers etc. Being remote hosted ensures that all data is protected through a complex encryption process. This provides our franchisees with confidence, knowing that all of their data as well as their customer’s information is safe and protected against cyber attacks.
