Consequences to an organisation of the data security breaches

A data security breach could have serious, adverse consequences for an organisation and its stakeholders.

If an organisation is affected by a data security breach, it should consider its potential legal remedies. This usually involves gathering the relevant facts and supporting evidence, identifying the relevant sources of legal obligations, and determining which legal remedies to pursue in relation to the data security breach.

Initiating the exercise of legal remedies usually involves preparing and issuing a letter of demand to the organisation or person believed to have caused the data security breach.
