Our Service

A very significant proportion of data protection enforcement action taken by the regulator, the Information Commissioner (ICO), relates to security breaches.

The data protection regime requires data breaches to be recorded and, where there are risks to individual data subjects, there is a requirement to report breaches to the ICO and sometimes to the affected individual data subjects. 

The legislation requires prompt action, with a requirement to report material breaches within a challenging 72 hours.  Myerson recommends that organisations put in place protocols or procedures to ensure an appropriate and timely response to personal data breaches and to demonstrate a responsible approach to compliance.

Myerson can also advise in the event of a personal data breach on reporting requirements and procedures.
