Extensive Data Identification, Analysis and Extraction in Response to Consumer Services Privacy Breach
A major U.S.-based consumer services company experienced a privacy breach at a European company it had acquired. The company needed to identify the personal data that was compromised so it could respond to the incident according to requirements under the General Data Protection Regulation. The organisation also needed to determine whether any of the exposed employee or customer personal data was protected under additional regulations. Emerging data source experts in FTI Technology’s Information Governance, Privacy & Security practice in EMEA were engaged to provide a broad view of the breach, including its severity, the volume and types of personal data that were exposed, and the scope of jurisdictions implicated within the dataset.
