Data breach response plan

A data breach happens to the best of us. Every company or organisation can face it sooner or later. In European countries, tens of thousands of data breaches have been reported to local authorities. In the Netherlands, for example, around 25,000 reports were made. When a data leak occurs, an organisation faces a lot of issues in a short period of time. Fast and adequate action is crucial in such incidents. In this article, we provide a practical step-by-step action plan of what to do in the event of a (potential) data breach, particularly in light of the obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
