Frequently Asked Questions

A security incident is the unintentional disclosure of regulated data, whether by accidental or malicious causes. For example, an attempted phishing attack or social engineering attack. A data breach is when a security incident results in the disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII) or protected health information (PHI) to an unauthorized party. 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.
