As a previous post on this blog has discussed, businesses in Las Vegas and throughout Nevada have certain obligations to protect the data of their customers. This is especially true when the data includes financial information or particularly sensitive personal information, like a Social Security number.
The personal data of employees and customers is becoming an increasingly valuable commodity.

Many entrepreneurial individuals in Nevada may be thinking of starting a business in the current economic climate, which is as good as it has been for companies in decades. Taxes are low and, even though the job market can be tight, unemployment is the lowest it has been in almost 50 years.
