Data breach policies under the GDPR

The GDPR states that a personal data breach is “a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed”.

Under the GDPR, organisations must respond to personal data breaches responsibly and lawfully, and within certain time periods. This response can be set out in a policy: a high-level document that defines principles, rather than detailing how, what and when things should be done.

Policies must be:

  • Capable of implementation;
  • Enforceable; and
  • Concise and easy to understand.

Easily create your GDPR data breach response policy using this customisable template

Our data breach response policy is a high-level document that can be integrated into an organisation’s operational procedures to present its commitment to acting lawfully in response to a personal data breach.

To complete the template, fill in the customisable areas with your organisation’s procedures, detailing how you minimise the risk of personal data breaches and respond to them under the GDPR, and assign roles to specific tasks.

Please note that this template is not an out-of-the-box solution and you will need to add details that match what your organisation does and what it should be doing. See our FAQs for more information.
