Lesson 10: Responding to a Data Breach
The alarm bells are ringing, the lights are flashing – it’s a data breach! But don’t panic; if you’ve been paying attention to your trusty WISP, you’ll know exactly what to do.
In the event of a data breach, we don’t just ignore it and hope it goes away (much like that stack of laundry you’ve been avoiding). We also don’t spread the news around the office like the latest gossip.
What we do is respond according to the procedures outlined in the WISP. It’s our guide, our playbook, our step-by-step manual for handling a data breach. It’s like having a firefighter at the ready when a fire breaks out.
Data breaches can be scary, but with our WISP and the guidelines from the IRS and FTC, we’re well-equipped to handle them. So, next time you hear the alarm bells ringing, remember your training. You’re a data protection pro, and you’ve got this!
