d3 Solutions - Data Breach Incident Management
The first step in managing a data breach is to identify that it has occurred. This may involve monitoring systems and networks, and conducting an investigation if suspicious activity is detected.
Once a data breach has been identified, the next step is to contain it to prevent further damage. This may involve disconnecting affected systems from the network or shutting down certain services.
The extent of the breach will be assessed to determine what data has been compromised and how many individuals are affected. This will inform the response and notification procedures.
Individuals who are affected by the breach will be notified as soon as possible. This notification will include information about what data has been compromised, what actions are being taken to mitigate the breach, and any steps that individuals can take to protect themselves.
A response plan is in place to address the breach, including procedures for restoring affected systems and conducting forensic analysis to determine the cause of the breach.
The breach will be reported to relevant authorities, such as data protection authorities or law enforcement agencies, as required by Singapore law.
Review and Improvement
After the breach has been addressed, a review will be conducted to determine what lessons can be learned and what improvements can be made to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
