How can I decrease my company’s electronic data breach liability?


Planning for an electronic data breach is the most important thing a business can do to protect against liability resulting from a breach. Additionally, being prepared can save time and money and prevent any reputational harm associated with a data breach.

In order to reduce liability, first, businesses should know what type of client information is electronically stored. Knowing where and how that data is stored is also critical. Many cloud vendors rely on overseas subcontractors to store some of their data, increasing the vulnerability of the data and making any attempt to seek identification for a breach difficult and expensive. Second, businesses should test their systems and response plan, having templates and a communication chain already together, before a breach occurs.
