You’ve received the dreaded call that your company has just suffered a data breach – what do you do next? Who do you call for help? What notification obligations do you have?
With proper preparation, you can mitigate the damage caused by this unfortunate event and put your business in a position to recover. Your company may have already implemented its information security program and identified the responsible parties, including applicable outside experts, to be contacted in the event of a breach. However, now you must call up your incident response team to investigate the extent of the breach, evaluate the possible damage to your company, and determine whether you must notify your clients, customers or the public of the breach.
