At Vancord, we'll walk you through what you actually need to be Incident Resilient. And one thing you need in the event of a data breach? You need the assistance and guidance of a data breach coach.

We deal in data, digital forensics, and IT infrastructure. The legal field? That’s not our forte. We don’t know all the laws, but we work with people who do. How can a data breach coach ensure compliance and business continuity? Let’s explore.

A data breach coach is part of the legal field.

While we’re optimistic, we know that even the best defenses in place can still fail in a robust cyber attack. To a hacker, stealing a company’s data is the bread and butter of their blackhat business.

When data breaches occur, the right steps and the right people must be notified according to a range of compliance requirements. For example, DOE mandates notification within 24 hours of an attack on financial aid data.

A data breach coach is one such person who will look at the systems that have been attacked, the information those systems hold, and the steps to take to remedy the situation in a legal context. Insurance carriers also work directly with breach coaches.

How a data breach coach helps your organization when an attack occurs

Data breach coaches are an invaluable source of information and legal guidance to organizations that have been hacked. Here are just a few of the ways a data breach coach can assist your organization:

  • Offer up-to-date legal knowledge 
  • Help organizations remain compliant
  • Guide organizations on how to respond to a data breach
  • Give access to third-party specialists who can help with incident response
