FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cleveland, OH – March 9, 2010 – Avalution Consulting and Immersion, Ltd. announced today the release of a joint white paper – Finding the Right Balance: Data Breach Prevention vs. Response, co-authored by Larissa K. Crum of Immersion Ltd., and Brian Zawada of Avalution Consulting.
No organization expects to have a breach; in fact, most organizations have gone to great lengths and spent tremendous amounts of money to prevent them from happening. However, the number of reported data breaches in recent years has skyrocketed, and a strategy is needed to minimize the cost and reputational damage associated with a breach event when proper prevention techniques fail. This white paper discusses the importance of being able to quickly and efficiently respond to a breach, current and proposed federal regulations and state statutes that your organization must comply with in the event of a breach, and how to establish your organization’s data breach response plan and team.
