How to manage a data security incident – Ten tips from a breach practitioner

Here’s a slide deck (including speaking notes) for a presentation I did today at LegalTech Toronto.

I aimed for something practical on the art of breach response by speaking to these ten tips:

  1. Initiate response ASAP
  2. Don’t rest on assumptions
  3. Keep the ball moving
  4. Don’t rush
  5. Obtain objective input
  6. Obtain technical input
  7. Take a broad view of notification
  8. Put yourself in their shoes
  9. Demonstrate commitment to doing better
  10. Apologize

Enjoy!

Better breach response – how to be good when things go bad

Here’s a presentation my partner Ian Dick and I gave today to an audience of in-house counsel. It’s about the why’s and how’s of breach response planning. The wonderful Karen Gordon of Squeaky Wheel Communications also presented on communicating a data breach, and her slides are attached.
