Session for privacy, security, and compliance officers:

Diagnosing an Incident: Is it a Breach? 

Presented by Mahmood Sher-Jan, CEO of RADAR, Inc.

3:15 - 4:00 pm, Garden 3 Room

An employee clicks on malware every 81 seconds. This, plus cyber attacks, employee mistakes, and policy violations puts sensitive information at constant risk. Properly diagnosing and risk assessing incidents is critical in ensuring your organization complies with regulatory and contractual data breach obligations. But how do you identify which incidents are data breaches, particularly when up to 90% of incidents can be sufficiently risk mitigated to avoid notification after a compliant multi-factor risk assessment?

In this session, discover how to diagnose if an incident is a reportable data breach, minimize risks to your organization, and learn how security and privacy can work together to ensure compliance with regulations and your contractual data security obligations with business partners. Also, gain insights into incident response misconceptions, best practice benchmarks, and recommendations based on an analysis of metadata from thousands of incidents.
