    August 14, 2019 - Stuck building a Data Breach Response Plan Don't forget these must-have components! (webinar)

    Wed, Aug 14, 2019 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDT

    In today’s complex business environment, business disruptions are an everyday occurrence. A data breach, whether confirmed or suspected, is a major disruption with possibly devastating results. Because of the tremendous complexity of a data breach response, many business continuity practitioners must now learn how to support the creation of a response plan. In this session, BCM Leader Shane Mathew and Cybersecurity expert Mike Trpkosh will share the “must-have” components to building a comprehensive Data Breach Response plan and put it into the context anyone can understand. The session will cover the various components of the Data Breach response lifecycle, including those that are traditionally managed by IT or Cybersecurity teams. This type of response typically requires significant partnership and actions similar to other business disruption or crisis management plans. The facilitators will also help you understand how the notification of data breach responses work, and how this part of the event lifecycle can have a tremendous impact on business operations.

    The Table-top Exercise has been designed specifically for the Private-Sector and will focus on:
