Data Breach Aftermath and Recovery for Individuals and Institutions: Proceedings of a Workshop

The Forum on Cyber Resilience of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a Workshop on Data Breach Aftermath and Recovery for Individuals and Institutions. The meeting was held on January 12, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The workshop featured nine speakers addressing a broad range of perspectives on data breaches: empirical, consumer, and data holders’ perspectives and legal and policy perspectives. Distinguished scholars, lawyers, consumer advocates, and industry executives contributed their varied expertise to help draw out key themes and examples and to offer their views on response mechanisms for mitigating harm when data breaches occur. Cross-cutting themes that emerged throughout the day and were discussed in the concluding plenary session include the following: defining harm, data breach and analysis and the need for a feedback loop to learn from aftermath and remediation to help prevent future breaches, data breach remediation itself, and possible mechanisms for future change. The meeting was open to the public. This proceedings was created from the presenters’ slides, notes, and a full transcript of the workshop.
