Ponemon Institute’s “2016 Cost of Data Breach Study” estimates the average time to identify a breach at 201 days, and 70 days to contain it.

As alarming as those numbers are, and as tempting as it is to focus entirely on prevention, it’s essential that your company have a plan for the early gut- wrenching hours of discovery. It should clearly outline your breach response team’s post-breach roles and actions as you progress toward resolution.

This white paper will give you a better understanding of what to consider in the first two days after a breach. While each security event is unique and timeframes may vary, by the time you finish reading and acting on our suggestions, we are confident you’ll be prepared to develop a clear, succinct and practiced response plan.
