If the increasingly frequent news of large-scale data breaches (i.e. Ashley Madison, Target, Sony, etc.) has proven anything, it confirms that there’s no longer a question of whether an organisation will be breached, but rather when.
Companies need to know what to do to mitigate this risk and how to quickly respond to contain the damage breaches like these cause when they do happen. While executives, board members, consumers, employees, and partners are all concerned about breaches, it’s only companies that are proactive in building internal safeguards to minimize the impact of a breach that are in a much better position to defend against their cost and damage.
