In the video, partner and attorney Birgitte Toxværd explains how organisations should act in case of a breach of personal data security.
Each month, the Danish Data Protection Agency receives approx. 600 - 800 notifications about a breach of personal data security from companies and public authorities. These are security breaches that concern personal data and may be e.g. e-mails sent to the wrong recipients, unauthorised access to information, clicks on phishing e-mails or loss of data.
A security breach must be stopped immediately and should also be reported to the Data Protection Agency within 72 hours.
