Establish a strategy for security breach notification

When it comes to security breaches, it’s important to remember that old adage about quality vs. quantity. Data breaches aren’t just about a hacker breaking into a network and stealing information. In fact, they come in all shapes and sizes:

> A data breach can occur with a lost or stolen laptop that has someone’s social security number.
> A data breach can occur with a lost BlackBerry that has personal information about employees or customers.

> A data breach can occur with a fax that includes financial information that’s thrown away instead of shredded.

In other words, a data breach can happen anytime an unauthorized individual has access to sensitive or private information. It’s important to remember that a variety of factors can lead to this exposure.
