Making the Most of a Security Breach
It can be extremely difficult to gain the trust back from users if you experience a security breach or crisis. So while obviously the first piece of advise in risk management is to prevent it in the first place, you should also be prepared if it does happen.
Brands should look at it as an opportunity to provide more communication, more collaboration, and more transparency to users. While actively prioritizing better processes and investing in better risk management, turn a negative into a positive.
Here are 3 approaches to bounce back from a breach:
- Pre-Breach Approach. Transparency goes a long way. Public disclosure of security policies and certifications shows your commitment to security. While that can be shown publicly on social media, email communications, or hosted on your website, it is also important to have this up-to-date information available to stakeholders as well.
- Breach Approach. When an incident does happen, make it a rule that you should NOT rush to conclusions. Decide on a small, trusted group of experts PLUS third-party supporters at the ready. Then when it comes to investigating and reporting, be sure to include an executive summary, technical details, and regular updates.
- Post-Breach Approach. Stress ongoing commitment, governance policies, and cyber investment. Don’t be afraid to actively highlight technical threats and vulnerability management processes.
