Be Informed

of the latest data security trends

The key step to manage the data breach if it already took place is...

COMMUNICATION: both internal (inform employees and involve everyone able to help, i.e. tech specialist, client service managers, PR & communication team, etc.) and external (direct mailing to the clients, official media release if necessary).

Basic rules in this case are:

  • Be open and sincere
    Admit if the fault was on company's side and accept responsibility.
  • Provide details
    Explain why the situation took place.
  • Mitigate
    Make conclusions out of the disaster and describe solutions for affected users. If possible, prepare a special offer for the affected audience.
  • Report the incident to the Regulatory Body within the prescribed period.
  • Educate
    Explain how to prevent similar issues in the future.
  • Invite to dialogue
    Involve your clients, industry experts, analysts, media people and general public to the broader discussion about the source of the problem.
