What’s involved in reporting a data breach?
First of all, you need to undertake a preliminary investigation to decide whether you need to report the breach to the ICO. Not all breaches need to be reported, and it can be difficult to decide whether your incident meets the criteria for reporting. Remember you only have 72 hours between discovering the data breach to when you need to report it to the ICO – if it’s reportable.
