“Businesses are not going to be judged by the fact an incident has occurred. … The focus is always going to be on your response,” she says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Mirza discusses:

  • The importance of regular communication with the public after a data breach;
  • Key lessons to learn from Twitter’s response;
  • Whether California Consumer Privacy Act enforcement could apply to the Twitter incident.

Mirza is a cybersecurity, information governance and privacy attorney at the law firm Troutman Pepper. She focuses her practice on the financial services industry.
