If you have experienced a Data Breach, your next step is to be transparent with your customers and tell them how you are responding regarding their personal information.
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner recommends the following:
- If a data breach creates a risk of harm to a person, you should usually notify them. Notifying them promptly means they can take steps to protect themselves and regain control of their information as soon as possible.
- Do not notify people unless you’re sure that the breach has compromised their information. Notifying the wrong people by mistake can cause unintentional damage.
