You've Been Breached: Facing the Challenge of Data Breach Notifications
As seen in news headlines from around the globe, data breaches are an ever-present (yet commonly overlooked) threat to an organization's operational well-being. Today, responding to a data breach is far more complicated than simply sending a mass mailing to affected customers notifying them of the occurrence. Given the potentially catastrophic operational, reputational, financial, and legal impacts of a data breach on an organization, data breach notification and communication strategies are a necessary component of an organization's business continuity, crisis management and information security initiatives. By leveraging existing plans, processes and people, organizations can lessen the impact of a data breach and communicate with customers, business partners and authorities in a timely and effective manner.
