Featuring 984 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Data Breach improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 984 standard requirements:

  1. One day; you may be the victim of a data breach and need to answer questions from customers and the press immediately. Are you ready for each possible scenario; have you decided on a communication plan that reduces the impact on your support team while giving the most accurate information to the data subjects? Who is your company spokesperson and will you be ready even if the breach becomes public out of usual office hours?

  2. What are the implications of data breaches and privacy violations for environmental data, including the location of strategic natural resources and the environmental performance of individual firms?

  3. Can one assume that a cloud-based organization will protect and secure ones data (back it up, check for data errors, defend against security breaches) if one is using services at a very low cost?

  4. How do your data brokers verify that customers have legitimate need for the information some purchase, and how will this verification process change in response to recent data-security breaches?

  5. Does your organizations IT strategy include an incident response plan that is evaluated regularly to ensure it addresses new and emerging types of security and privacy risks and breaches?

  6. Have you secured service agreements to provide call center, triage, crisis communications, credit-monitoring support and/or other services that are needed in the event of a data breach?

  8. Estimate organization exposure if cloud vendor experiences an illegal or unauthorized release/breach of data. How many private records will your organization be storing in the cloud?

  9. Have you installed and do you maintain a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) system to identify, monitor, and protect sensitive data while in use, in motion, and at rest on your network?

  10. Does it stand to reason that in all instances when damages occur that there was previously a reasonable likelihood for harm giving rise to liability for a failure to warn?
