E-Crime Expert is glad to feature a new  blog post on Data Breach Response Plan, provided by iPost. If you would like to find out more about iPost click here.

According to iPost: “Whether you are in healthcare, the financial industry or you run an independent business, you should have a data breach response plan. It is foolhardy to think that a data breach isn’t going to happen to you. It isn’t a matter of if, it is a matter of when. Is it an emergency? You better treat it like one”.

Bellow, is E-Crime Expert’s contribution and suggestions on how to prevent and facilitate a quicker Response to a Data Breach:

Cyber-security expert and consultant Dan Manolescu has some more suggestions“:

The organization could have a privacy/security policy in place which addresses potential privacy and security issues; establish risk mitigation practices and ensures standard and uniform action within the organization with regards to preventing, dealing/handling and providing review/feedback on privacy, security issues. Also, this privacy, security policy should state clearly the legal obligation with regards to protection of personal data of individuals.

Buy/develop a scanning software that scans all the incoming and outgoing messages within that organizations, programmed on different but specific keywords, such as security, alert, virus, scam, etc, in order to flag those messages containing those specific keywords, regardless of whether they are sent to inbox, trash or spam folder. This action could be done automatically without needing to provide access to any human operated action to the content of the message itself. Privacy/security audit trails could be also put in place. I will suggest that this practice should be notified to the employees along with the “computer and electronic usage” policy within that organization.

Other than that, providing periodical training to staff and management on these issues definitely helps to properly identify and handle these messages which could be important for an organization.
