COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite the increasing awareness around the rise in data breaches and potential damage, not all organizations are taking the necessary steps to mitigate the fallout from a cyberattack. According to a 2013 Experian Data Breach Resolution and Ponemon Institute study, Is Your Company Ready for a Big Data Breach?, nearly 40 percent of companies that experienced a breach say they have not developed a formal preparedness plan even after the incident. To help businesses and institutions get started,Experian Data Breach Resolution has released its updated 2013–2014 Data Breach Response Guide.
An excellent tool for any organization looking to develop a data breach response plan, the content is appropriate for professionals handling security, risk and compliance, as well as senior leadership and executives responsible for business continuity. It contains information on how to create a plan and what to do during the crucial first 24 hours of a breach. The guide also addresses how to notify customers, patients or employees and work with a data breach resolution partner. Additional content in the guide provides recent information on the HIPAA Omnibus Rule and a snapshot of upcoming federal legislation on breach notification laws.
The guide can be downloaded for free at http://www.experian.com/responseguide.
