Frequently Asked Questions

A security incident is a scenario where there is an unauthorized disclosure of PII. For example, an attempted phishing attack or social engineering attack. A data breach is is when that incident is notifiable under breach
notification laws. While all data breaches are privacy incidents, not all incidents are breaches.

  • What are some examples of a privacy incident?
    • Some examples of a privacy incident can include: a laptop containing PII is stolen, an email with PII is sent to the wrong person, or a box of documents with PII is lost during shipping.
  • What is a security incident under GDPR?
    • According to the GDPR, “a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.”


A successful privacy program should simplify the incident management lifecycle to reduce risk for your organization and build trust for your brand. The program should help your team arrive at consistent and reliable breach decisioning every time. A mature privacy program should be intelligent – capable of automatically mapping the privacy landscape and agile, to stay ahead of all relevant laws and regulations.

There are 10 steps to managing a privacy incident: Discovery; Triage and Investigation; Regulatory Research; Third-Party Contractual Obligations; Team Collaboration; Risk Assessment; Breach Decision; Remediation and Notification; Prevention and Analysis; Benchmarking.

Depending on where your organization does business, or manages data from, the most relevant regulations will change. Global privacy regulations include the: EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), EU ePrivacy Directive, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act of Canada (PIPEDA), China’s Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL), Australia’s Privacy Act, and Japan’s Act on the Protection of Personal Information (AAPI).

The United States does not have a singular law that covers the privacy of all types of data, though the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) is making rounds through the House of Representatives, and the executive branch recently signed into law the Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act, which involves security reporting for a wide range of public and private entities.

In recent years several states have followed in California’s footsteps, modeling laws off the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) including Utah, Colorado, Virginia, and Connecticut.  Finally, several federal laws contain privacy regulations, including HIPAA, FCRA, FERPA, GLBA, ECPA, COPPA, and VPPA.

And separate from this long list of privacy laws, every US state and most territories have laws that specify entities’ breach notification obligations, when the personal information of citizens has been subject to unauthorized disclosure.
