If your business is a contractor for the federal government, you had better have your data breach response ducks in a row. The moment you detect a breach, the clock starts ticking and you have only 3 days to notify of the breach. Yes, I said 3 days!
You better already know who your legal counsel a/k/a “breach coach” will be.
You better already know who is on your company’s breach response team.
You better already know who your cyber security forensics and remediation firm will be.
You better already have your PR professional in place.
You better already have your notification vendor in place.
You better already know what information must be in your notifications, depending on the jurisdiction.
You better already know what information cannot be in your notifications, depending on the jurisdiction.
You better already have your cyber insurance in place.
In other words, you had better have your breach response plan in place and be ready to execute that plan within 3 days’ time.
If you are not prepared, now is time to get prepared. Take the first step by contacting Shawn Tuma and learning more about his unique CyberGard–Cyber Risk Protection Program.
