Consider data use before an incident occurs

Jan 13, 2020

On January 13, 2020, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) released a blog on how before any board director reflexively says “breach,” they should think “incident” instead. After all, “breach” is a legal term that carries implications that could harm a company if used before being advised that an incident is, in fact, a breach.

A balance needs to be struck between easy access to and the protection of data. The nature of cyber-attacks has evolved depending on sector, but the regulatory sphere is only slowly ramping up. Directors should consider resiliency as part of any solution.

Review the full blog on the NACD's website.
