Depending on its size and scope, a data breach can be a transforming event in the life of an organization. While some data breaches are small, contained events that do not trigger statutory notification obligations or garner widespread attention beyond the affected few, larger breaches can cause serious damage to an organization’s long-term reputation and standing.
The most important aspect of managing a breach boils down to timeliness – timeliness of discovery, investigation, notification and responsiveness. When any aspect of managing a breach is ill-timed, stakeholder trust and loyalty are at risk.
