The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) requires all data controllers to report certain types of personal data breach to the DPC (Data Protection Commissioner). You must do this within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach where feasible.
Organisations reporting a breach must complete a breach notification form. The Irish DPC has released two breach notification forms: the National Breach Notification Form and the Cross Border Breach Notification Form.
Finding out what the breach is, who has been affected, how extensive it is and how it happened within 72 hours is not easy — especially when organisations want to use this time to start fixing damage caused by the breach.
Reporting a breach to the DPC
Your reputation is on the line. How can IT Governance help?
The simple fact that no two organisations are ever the same means there can be no one-size-fits-all approach to the GDPR. To help you develop a successful and secure organisation, IT Governance has developed three SPF (Security Protection Factor) offers to align with your business requirements and budget.
What happened? Tell us as much as you can about what happened, what went wrong and how it happened.
Quickly respond to any cyber incident with a cyber incident response programme, enabling you to effectively prepare, respond and follow-up after any type of data breach. The cyber incident response management service is based on the best practice cyber security incident response framework developed by CREST and ISO/IEC 27035.
Assessing data that is affected
“What is the number of personal data records concerned? How many data subjects could be affected?”
The data flow audit service provides a thorough audit of the personal data in your organisation and a data flow map that will help you identify where your data resides. This will help you to implement targeted measures to reduce your risk of an information security breach.
The Data Flow Mapping Tool simplifies the process of creating data flow maps, giving you a thorough understanding of the personal data your organisation processes and why, where it is held and how it is transferred.
Describing the impact: potential consequences
“Please describe the possible impact on data subjects as a result of the breach. Please state of there has been any actual harm to data subjects.”
Determining the likelihood and impact of a data breach is best done through a comprehensive information security risk assessment, enabling you to take appropriate action. Suitable for organisations of all sizes, vsRisk™ is a leading information security risk assessment tool that delivers fast, accurate, auditable and hassle-free risk assessments year after year. Fully aligned with ISO 27001, it significantly cuts the consultancy costs typically associated with information security risk assessment.
Reporting on staff training and awareness
“Had the staff member involved in this beach received data protection training in the last two years?”
This simple-to-use, interactive GDPR staff awareness e-learning course for employees introduces the GDPR and the key compliance obligations for organisations. It aims to provide a complete foundation on the principles, roles, responsibilities and processes under the Regulation.
The interactive information security staff awareness e-learning course teaches employees about the most important elements of information security, and aims to reduce the likelihood of human error by familiarising non-technical staff with security awareness policies and procedures.
This unique GDPR training programme provides a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of the GDPR, and a practical guide to planning, implementing and maintaining a GDPR compliance programme
Preventive measures and taking action. Addressing the problem
“Describe any measures you had in place before the breach with the aim of preventing a breach of this nature.” (Follow-up report).
“Describe the actions you have taken, or propose to take, as a result of the breach. Include, where appropriate, actions you have taken to fix the problem, and to mitigate any adverse effects.”
ISO 27001 is the world’s leading information security standard, trusted by thousands of organisations. These ISO 27001 implementation bundles consist of a specially formulated combination of best-selling tools, hands-on guidance and trusted resources that will help you implement an ISO 27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS) from start to finish.
With prices starting from as little as £300, the Cyber Essentials scheme provides organisations with a cost-effective assurance mechanism to help reduce risk and demonstrate that the most important basic cyber security controls have been implemented.
