Business leaders know privacy incidents are routine. Teams can be juggling up to hundreds of minor incidents at any given moment, with nearly half (47%) also experiencing a major data breach simultaneously in the last year.
Privacy Counsel plays a critical role in this incident response. In fact, the lion’s share of incident-associated costs are attributed to privacy — not security. The average corporation spent 73%, 76%, and 79% of incident-related resources on legal and privacy in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively.
Privacy should join the driver’s seat of incident management
The above numbers underscore why Chief Privacy Officers (CPOs) are now being held personally liable for incidents in increasing numbers of regulations.
When it comes to preparing for and responding to incidents, leading privacy teams don’t just partner with security. They become co-pilots. Leading privacy teams are taking the incident management reins to deescalate the number and cost of incidents and truly constrain organizational liability.
