Data breach vs. ethics breach: How to prepare for both

Data breaches seem like a daily headline in today’s age of 72-hour breach reporting and the 24/7 news cycle. While consumers may no longer be shocked by their data being lost or stolen, how an incident occurs can impact the level of reputational damage following a breach. Stakeholders understand the difference between a data breach that may occur from a security flaw and an “ethics breach,” where a company was careless with personal information or sought to capitalize on the improper use of data.

In this session, we’ll review case studies from recent breaches and analyze which situations qualify as an “ethics breach” and tips to avoid the catastrophe of an ethics breach violation in your company.

The main agenda points of the day are:

  • Exploring benefits and strategies for positioning ethics at the centre of an organisation’s breach management practices
  • Discussing the different types of breaches and how organisations can proactively prepare for them as well as choose the correct course of action for each type of breach
  • Reviewing real examples of breaches with ethical impact and discussing ethical dilemmas that many organisations face on top of the security and privacy implications
