As businesses and large corporations are experiencing data breaches left and right, it becomes increasingly more important that businesses learn not only what preventative measures to take, but how to recover from a data breach as well. There is a mirroring trend in the development of technology and the intelligence of cyber attackers.
If your organization has experienced a data breach, there are a variety of steps you must take to recover with ease. Before going public with the news, you must be able to answer questions of what happened, why it happened, how the organization will prevent this from happening again, and how this data breach affects customers.
In recovering, you must be sure that you keep your word on any promises you make throughout the ordeal. If you announce that you will be conducting credit monitoring for customers, you must be sure to follow through with the promise. Likewise, you will want to emphasize your company’s recovery and tell the public how you have learned from the experience and what you will do to prevent further occurrences. Most importantly, you must conduct some form of retraining your employees and reiterating security practices to ensure that everything is sound.
