Breaches are inevitable. You can implement strong security controls but breaches are a matter of when, not if it happens. The faster you respond to a breach of personally identifiable or sensitive information, the lower the operational, financial, or reputational impact to your organization. If your organization stores information such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers and financial information, you need to be in a position to respond and notify because it’s sound business practice and it’s the law in the State of Oregon. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of the regulatory requirements when it comes to breach notification and provide tools you can use in your own organizations to quickly respond to breaches when they occur, especially when you are required to notify your customers of such a breach.

This presentation is intended for security professionals, compliance officers, chief privacy officers and legal counsel who are or may be responsible for responding to security incidents that involves the unsecure breach of personally identifiable, protected, or sensitive information.
