What data breach procedures we have in place
What is a personal data breach? The Information Commissioner’s Office states that a personal data breach can be broadly defined as a security incident that has affected the confidentiality, integrity or availability of personal data. In short, there will be a personal data breach whenever any personal data is lost, destroyed, corrupted or disclosed; if someone accesses the data or passes it on without proper authorization; or if the data is made unavailable and this unavailability has a significant negative effect on individuals.
Action to be taken in the event of a data breach
1. Containment and recovery
The immediate priorities are to:
• Contain the breach;
• Assess the potential adverse consequences for individuals, based on how serious or substantial these are, and how likely they are to happen; and
• To limit the scope.
2. Assessing the risk
Perhaps most important is an assessment of potential adverse consequences for individuals, how serious or substantial these are and how likely they are to happen.
Examples would be what information being stored is at risk and is it information that is sensitive that would create a volatile situation.
The information stored by this site would be no more than is accessible from a local telephone directory except in the case of email addresses.
This would likely then expose the owner of the email address to spam of some sort.
3. Reporting of breach to relevant parties affected by such.
This would be carried out after a determination of what might actually have been exposed and what infractions specifically occurred.
