Don’t Procrastinate on Cyber Security

Back in 2005, the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) released minimum security requirements for customs brokers. Since then, the industry has far exceeded these minimum requirements and new standards introduced by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in July are putting cybersecurity back at the forefront of discussion.

Customs brokers deal with highly sensitive information on a daily basis. Unfortunately, cybersecurity is something most forget about until it is too late. With cyber-attacks on the rise, customs brokers should be proactive in protecting their data. IB&M provides tailored cybersecurity insurance to protect customs brokers from potential data breaches. In addition, brokers should educate their staff on CBP standards and keep them aware of the potential risks associated with handling sensitive data. Contact us today for a quote.
