In today’s privacy and security landscape, security breaches are commonplace – yet the legal terms and conditions surrounding those breaches are often convoluted. As a result, many companies remain unsure about how to effectively handle their breaches. So how can you stay ahead of your breaches and mitigate risks?
Rachael Tenerowicz, Director of Privacy and Cybersecurity at Uber, suggests taking a proactive approach to the cybersecurity disclosure guidelines outlined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These guidelines can pose significant risks to your company, so it’s important to develop the appropriate incident response measures. Informing your customers of a security breach before disclosing to the general public allows your clients to secure their own data and minimizes your risks of further attacks.
