We're not just securing businesses anymore. We're securing Society.
At North Bridge, we view identity theft as a scourge on society, and we are committed to preventing it by securing personally identifiable information (PII) at its main source: small businesses. We understand that small businesses are a prime target for cybercriminals, who often seek to steal sensitive data such as Social Security numbers, credit card information, and other personal data that can be used for identity theft.
By providing comprehensive cybersecurity solutions and compliance services, we help small businesses protect their customers’ data and prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. Our team of experts works with small businesses to identify potential vulnerabilities in their systems and implement measures to mitigate those risks. We also provide ongoing support and guidance to ensure that our clients are always up-to-date with the latest cybersecurity trends and regulations.
At North Bridge, we believe that preventing identity theft is not just a matter of protecting individual consumers but also a collective responsibility to ensure the safety and security of our society as a whole.

North Bridge’s efforts to help small businesses and organizations protect their data have a positive impact on identity theft by making it more difficult for thieves to access or steal information. Identity theft is a growing concern that can have devastating consequences for individuals, businesses, and society as a whole. Cybercriminals often target small businesses because they often have weaker security measures than larger enterprises, making them an easier target.
By securing personally identifiable information (PII) at the main source of identity theft, which is small businesses, North Bridge is helping to reduce the number of successful identity theft attempts. We work with small businesses to identify potential vulnerabilities in their systems and implement effective cybersecurity measures, such as encryption, firewalls, and employee training.
One of the primary ways we help small businesses prevent identity theft is by educating them about the importance of data security and compliance. This includes providing training on how to identify phishing scams, the importance of password management, and how to properly dispose of sensitive data. By arming small businesses with the knowledge and tools they need to protect their customers’ data, we are creating a more secure environment for everyone.
North Bridge also offers compliance services to help small businesses navigate the complex regulatory landscape. We help our clients stay up-to-date with the latest regulations and standards, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and ensure that their data security practices are in compliance with these regulations.
In addition to protecting small businesses from identity theft, our efforts also have a positive impact on the overall cybersecurity landscape. By improving the security practices of small businesses, we are helping to create a more secure online environment for everyone, including individuals, larger businesses, and government agencies.
