Data Breach Policy

Sign in to view example

Data Breach Policy

A data breach policy is an internal workplace document that sets out how you and your employees deal with real or suspected breaches of the data / personal information you hold, and ensures that the correct procedures are followed to report, minimise and contain any breaches.

What does our Data Breach Policy contain?

A Data Breach Policy ensures that:

  • Your employees adhere to a specific procedure when they suspect or become aware of any data breach;
  • Investigations into actual and suspected breaches are carried out; and
  • Data breaches are reported properly, either to the Information Regulator and/or the people whose data has been breached.

Do most businesses need one?.

If you have a few employees, it is highly recommended that your business has a Data Breach Policy in place. This document is therefor templatised instead of automated. You will be able to file this as your standard Data Breach Policy and share it among employees.
