How to manage information security breaches effectively


Ely, England, 25 May 2011 – Even when organisations take precautions, they may still be at risk of a data breach. Information security incidents do not just affect small businesses; major companies and government departments suffer from them as well. The actions you take in response to a data breach can have a significant impact on your company’s future.

Managing Information Security Breaches: Studies from Real Life from the ITGP portfolio sets out a strategic framework for handling this kind of emergency. It focuses on the treatment of severe breaches and on how to re-establish safety and security once the breach has occurred. These recommendations support the controls for the treatment of breaches specified under ISO27001:2005. It will help readers:

  • Avoid information security breaches
  • Plan their response
  • Preserve the trust of their customers
  • Improve management processes.

Managing Information Security Breaches: Studies from Real Life provides a general discussion of, and a source of learning about, what information security breaches are, how they can be treated and what ISO27001 can offer in that regard. Spiced with a number of real-life stories of information security incidents and breaches, it is a ‘first line of defence’ for the reader who is affected by an incident and wants to turn to a source of guidance and direction.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance adds, “Information security is a key Board responsibility. In today’s information economy, the confidentiality, availability and integrity of corporate information assets and intellectual property are more important for the long-term success of organisations than traditional, physical, tangible assets. This book is essential reading for security officers, IT managers and company directors to ensure they are prepared for, and can effectively manage, an information security breach, should it occur”.
