One of the challenges facing many security professionals is justifying the cost of implementing security controls, procedures and supporting technologies. The Privacy Breach impact Calculator from InformationShield could be used to help you estimate the costs of a privacy breach, i.e. where personal data for clients could be exposed. While the tool is focused primarily for the US market and is used to promote the company’s products, it might be of some use to help determine the potential € impact of a breach. This could help you provide some objective rather than subjective data for your risk assessments or justification for purchasing of a solution.
