Data breach

In her article, Plan Ahead to Tackle Data Breaches:  Response strategy should be in place before problems ariseBusiness Insurance author Judy Greenwald writes about data breaches, responding to and remediating data breaches, and insurance for data breaches.

The article opens:

Establishing a data breach response plan before a problem occurs will help firms navigate the delicate issue of when they should inform those affected by a breach.

The article discusses incident response plans for dealing with data breaches.  Ms. Greenwald quotes some of the luminaries in the area of data breach responses, giving the reader insights from Jon A. Neiditz, John Doernberg, and others who handle data breach preparedness issues. Ms. Greenwald also quoted me in the article, writing:

Scott N. Godes, [formerly] of counsel at law firm Dickstein Shapiro L.L.P. in Washington, said the first thing to do when there is a data breach is “look at your insurance policies, and figure out whom you can notify and from whom you can request coverage right away.” To the extent an insurer agrees to cover the breach, “they can start providing you with resources right away,” he said.

She also put in one of the warnings that I gave.  Interested in seeing the warning?  And learning more about data breach incident response plans?  Then click on over to Plan Ahead to Tackle Data Breaches and read the whole thing.
