Data breach management – do you have a plan?

25th September 2018

From terms and conditions or contracts to data breaches and how to deal with them, companies are now travelling further down the road to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.

We have seen clients move from their immediate concerns about the agreements and notices they have in place to considering the future and how to protect themselves against a data breach, or handle one when necessary.

Appointing their Data Protection Officer and establishing their Incident Management Plan are key steps in this process. But it is also vital to make sure that staff understand the need to alert management to a data breach immediately as even if the ICO doesn’t need to be notified, you need to be able to document both the breach and your actions.

Because we have seen clients progressing to this stage, we are holding a series of events focusing on real-life scenarios, taking participants through the investigation and compliance processes with practical advice. Aimed at business leaders, data controllers and Data Protection Officers (DPOs) the events, in partnership with Marsh Ltd (Jelf) will equip you with the steps you need to take to keep the risk of a serious data breach to a minimum:
