European data breach notification legislation: guidelines for preparation

In two years, the General Data Protection (GDPR) legislation will be implemented in all European member states. This includes mandatory data breach notifications. The Netherlands leads the way with this legislation: data breach notifications already became mandatory in the country since January 2016.

In his blog published on Info Security Magazine, Kevin Jonkers, Manager Forensics and Incident Response at Fox-IT, offers guidelines for organizations to get ready for the GDPR. He stresses the importance of maintain data on relevant trace information: allowing for better determination of exactly what data was leaked. Network detection, the ‘digital black box’, also offers a way to find out which data were breached and where exactly the breach took place. Also, every company should appoint a ‘digital emergency response officer’: someone who knows exactly how to act in case of an incident and immediately takes the appropriate actions.
