Why is this important?
You need to be able to detect, investigate, risk-assess and record any breaches. You must report them as appropriate. Having effective processes in place helps you to do this. A personal data breach can have a range of adverse effects on individuals. There can be serious repercussions for organisations, their employees and customers, such as financial penalties (failure to notify a breach when required can result in a fine up to 10 million Euros or 2% of your global turnover), reputational damage, loss of business and disciplinary action.
