AFP: No Shame in Reporting Breaches
DATA LOSS—AUSTRALIAAugust 16, 2012
ZDNet reports on comments from Brad Marden of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) High Tech Crime Operations that if organisations have put the right security into place, they should not be ashamed to report breaches. "If your house is broken into, nobody thinks worse of you because you got broken into,” he said, adding, that it is when organisations attempt to cover up a breach that they “get far worse publicity in the long run." The report also details ways the AFP is willing to work with organisations to address online crime.
