You just found out about a data breach, it may be that hackers broke into a server and stole credit card numbers, or boxes of confidential information went missing from a storage room.
But what should you do now?
Protecting data security is key, but having a data breach response plan in place can significantly reduce the impact if a data breach does occur. Don’t waste any time before your data breach response, says Stephen Treglia in a darkreading.com blog. “There is a direct correlation between how quickly an organisation can identify and contain a data breach and the financial consequences that may result.”The 2015 Cost of Data Breach Study: United Kingdom by IBM and Ponemon puts the average total cost of a data breach at £2.37 million, which is a 7% increase over the past two years. Each lost or stolen record containing sensitive information cost an average of £104.
What’s important is that every organisation should have an official – and tested – Incident Response Plan at the ready. Then, here’s what needs to be done.
After a data breach incident, there’s an opportunity to improve security, including cyber security, across the board. Find out how a Shred-it all Policy is one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of a security breach and learn how secure shredding services can simplify document handing and destruction.
