In some chance timing given the release of the report on the Canadian investigation into the TJX breach, I presented today at a lunch meeting of the Association of Certified Forensic Investigators of Canada together with David Malamed of Grant Thonrton. We called the presentation “Data Breach Response: A Multidisciplinary Perspective.”
This is the first presentation David and I have given on an project we started at the beginning of the summer together with Karen Gordon, an expert crises communicator from Squeaky Wheel Communications. The idea we are promoting is that organizations should be using multi-disciplinary teams to manage breach response and, whether internal or external experts are used, the team should be defined in a formal breach response plan.
I’ve posted a copy of the presentation here.
