How do I protect my business in the event of a personal data breach?

Do you know how to respond to a data breach?

A company may suffer disastrous consequences as a result of a personal data breach; they can seriously harm a company’s finances and reputation by enabling criminals to utilise personal information to commit fraud and identity theft.

After the Covid-19 Pandemic, there was a surge in the number of cyber-attacks. Common types include phishing scams, malware attacks, and insider threats. Not only this, but as technology advances, people are becoming increasingly anxious about the kind of information that is stored about them online. This exposes your business and puts your company at risk. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that companies know their obligations in the event of a breach and the correct procedure to follow to minimise the risks.  Handling any kind of data breach requires careful consideration of many factors. That is why we have a team of specialist data protection solicitors that can guide you through the entire process.

Don’t let your business fall victim to personal data breaches. Watch Amanda Glover and Rebecca Dowle, members of the data protection team, for a quick overview of how to protect your business, including:

  • What is a personal data breach?
  • Rules on data breaches
    • Procedure
