Data breach reporting: describing the impact and its potential consequences

What are the breach’s potential consequences? Has there been any harm to data subjects as a result of the breach?

Establishing how much damage a breach has caused can be difficult, even for a seasoned information security expert.

However, following a proven risk assessment process and framework will help you not only identify and assess the various risks you face, but also establish the potential impact of those risks on the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data – as required by the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
