Data breach reporting: situational analysis

Are you ready to respond to a data breach? Do you know how to work out what happened – and how it happened?

One of the first things you’ll need to do when you become aware of a data breach is tell the supervisory authority – the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) – as much as you can about what happened, what went wrong and how it happened.

Few organisations really understand how to respond to data security incidents, which is why it is so important to implement a robust incident response management programme.

You will then be able to respond to any event, as well as reduce the risk of future incidents occurring.
