Is a data breach really that bad? Well, yes and no. It’s terrible that a breach occurred, but how you respond is what counts. It’s just like any problem. Your solution and response can turn everything around or your lack of response can create a bigger mess down the road, causing you to rethink your initial response. We have all seen it.

On the first Saturday of May the nation turned its attention to the Bluegrass State to see California Chrome race to victory at the 140th Kentucky Derby. Now that the spectacle has come and gone, we’re boxing up our hats but still keeping our eye on Kentucky to see how it fares in another kind of derby. Earlier this spring Kentucky entered the “data breach regulatory derby,” becoming the 47th state to enact a data breach notification law. If we were to handicap the race, this latest derby entrant is going to lose to Iowa’s recently amended breach law, SB 2252. Next to Iowa’s new law, Kentucky is looking a bit coltish, if you will.

The fact that Experian is also frequently trusted by organizations that themselves have had data breach to care for the affected consumers is downright perplexing.Read More »
