In which circumstances do we report a data breach?
A loss of personal data does not result in a data breach unless the breach results in a risk to the rights and freedoms of an individual, a detrimental effect on their reputation, financial loss, loss of confidentiality, discrimination, or any significant economic or social disadvantage.
Should a data breach occur, we will:
Report internally to the directors: David George, Mark Bradshaw
Report back directly to the individual exposed if there is a high risk to rights & freedoms
Report to the appointed Data Protection Officer (DPO) and/or data protection team
Report to the Information Commissioner’s Office with 72 hours
If the breach occurs or is discovered outside normal working hours, it must be reported as soon as is practicable. The DPO or response team lead will act as a point of contact to coordinate a response team in carrying out the following procedure:
Begin implementation of appropriate counter-measures whilst maintaining quality of service. Depending on the severity of the incident, it may be appropriate to temporally withdraw service.
Notify the client that an incident has taken place and appraise them of the situation.
If required by the client, we will notify affected users and appraise them of the situation. We will establish what, if any, data has been accessed or modified and promptly notify the client as to the extent of the incident. We will reset the authentication for affected users. We can also reset the authentication of all users of the service.
Where appropriate, we will provide a time-scale for the restoration of service and notify the client.
Following a full system test, service will be restored.
