Business Continuity and the Data Breach PDF Print E-mail


A Data Breach is a Business Continuity Crisis. 

A data breach is particularly interesting to PPBI as it involves your own internal organization and public organizations such as local police or the FBI who take charge of the investigation.

We recommend using the same principles of ICS that you use in your business continuity program to handle security incidents, thereby ensuring you manage all the critical functional areas that require attention in a crisis.

A recap of the interview appeared on both web sites.  To view the article and hear a podcast of that interview, click here.
