As a landlord, it’s not surprising that you deal with a lot of personal information. With a plethora of tenant and applicant information in your possession, you can never be too careful with other people’s sensitive information. You require applicants to provide you with this personal data so that you can judge their candidacy for renting your property, but, in doing so you have to protect that information in return. While that might sound like an easy task in theory, there are always little details that can be overlooked and potentially risk access to the data applicants have trusted you with.
So how can you protect the sensitive information you’re charged with safekeeping for applicants and tenants? While there is no foolproof way to safeguard data, there are measures you can take to defend the information in your possession.
