Don’t Ignore AT&T’s Latest Business Service Guide Update!
Read your July 17 AT&T email (“AT&T Business Service Guide – Subscription Notification of Change”) to discover how the carrier treats new network and data security responsibilities.
Keeping up with changes to online terms that the big guys – AT&T, Verizon, and CenturyLink – make is a must. Why? Those online terms form part of the contract under which you purchase services. Typically what’s inside the change notifications can be boring – a typo fix, shuffling of material, or statement that numerous (typically customer unfriendly) terms do not apply to fabulous new service. That was not the case recently, however, in the changes to AT&T’s General Provisions. AT&T is taking on limited responsibility for network and data security.
At an average total organizational cost of a data breach in the U.S. of $7.35 million, data security poses large risks to you and your vendor. Silence in the written contract is no longer an option.
