Data Breach Preparation Tips: Lessons Learned from 5,000 Data Breach Responses

Today, more companies are recognizing the value of engaging breach response providers to help them plan, practice, and become operationally ready for a possible breach event.

Most organizations are no longer asking us if they will experience a data breach, but what they can do to be ready when one hits. Furthermore, many leading businesses are no longer comfortable with a walk-in model that does not guarantee we will be ready to launch their customer response.

  • Conduct a thorough review and gap analysis of their incident response plan
  • Build out their customer-facing response plan
  • Test the customer-facing response plan via breach simulations and drills
  • Provide a comprehensive simulation report capturing action-items, gaps, and next steps

Over ten years of responding to more than 5,000 data breaches, we’ve learned a lot about how to execute a successful customer response.

Here are some tips for data breach preparation:

  • Have an incident response plan that includes how you will handle the customer response
  • Practice your plans regularly
  • Involve your internal incident response team and external response partners in building and testing your response plans
  • Work with a partner who can provide call center staff trained and knowledgeable in identity protection
  • Reserve guaranteed manpower to handle every aspect of the breach response
