Ninth Annual Study: Is Your Company Ready for a Big Data Breach?

Experian’s Data Breach Preparedness Study

Did you know only 56% of organizations have a Business Continuity plan?1

Most data breach response plans are stale and may not reflect the potential threats facing their organizations. Sixty-four percent of respondents say there is no set time for reviewing and updating the data breach plan (35 percent) or it has not been reviewed or updated since the plan was put in place (29 percent).2

The Ninth Annual Study: Is Your Company Ready for a Big Data Breach? sponsored by Experian® Data Breach Resolution and conducted by Ponemon Institute tracks the state of data breach preparedness on an annual basis. In this year’s research, we examine the value of Business Continuity Management (BCM) and crisis management plans to minimizing the consequences of a data breach. The study additionally explores attack trends for ransomware, spearphishing, remote work, end point, supply chains and third party.
