For businesses, the growing volume and sensitivity of information being shared, stored and used is driving demand for greater transparency about how such information is being managed and protected.

Do you know where you are vulnerable? Do you have a security incident response plan? How do you manage regulators and litigation in the event of an incident?

If you don’t know the answers to the above questions, we’re here to help. It is imperative that your organization has an incident response plan in place to mitigate potential risk and ensure you are ready to act if you encounter a security issue or data or privacy breach.

We created the below infographics to help organizations prepare for and respond to a security issue or data/privacy breach incident. Containing practical checklists and best practices, they can be used as a quick reference guide and help you

  • gain actionable advice on how your organization should respond to a privacy or data security issue/breach
  • create, test and refine your security incident or data breach plan
