DATA PROTECTIONDecember 21, 2011
In an interview with GovInfoSecurity, Brian Dean, CIPP/US, senior HIPAA and privacy consultant at SecureState, talks about setting up a breach response team--including the critical roles to put in place and how to make sure it's effective--before you need to use it. Dean says testing is the key to an effective plan; he recommends annual testing for the program and the team and making changes based on those findings. Dean also notes collaborating with peers and speaking with industry groups are crucial to ensure a successful program. "Proper planning will help garner the support needed to build a strong team, and if you position that correctly, the program will be seen as a corporate asset," says Dean.
