NPC’s Shawn Melito offers “20 Questions to Ask” When Engaging a Data Breach Responder, “Five Top Recommendations,” and more. Shawn is one of the co-chairs of the 2015 NetDiligence Cyber Risk & Privacy Liability Forum, set for Oct. 6-7 in Santa Monica.
Top Recommendation #4: Inventory all of your stored PII (Personal Identifiable Information) and know what a “worst-case” breach scenario could look like. Should a hacker get into your system, all of your files (HR, clients, healthcare, communications, etc.) could be compromised at the same time. Be sure to match your provider’s capacity (total number of notifications that can be mailed per day, maximum number of call center operators, etc.) with your potential breach exposure. Make sure the vendor can handle the potential volume.
