DPC's Data Breach response team assists controllers in navigating the challenging process of identifying data breaches. Companies only have 72 hours to notify the Bulgarian Data Protection Commission. If the incident has an international element, foreign supervisory authorities may also need to be notified. At DPC, we have the practical experience and knowledge to ensure this process is carried out smoothly and successfully.

Assessing the risk level in the data breach notification is a key element in this process. Often, after the notification, the supervisory authority requires additional data to be provided within a short timeframe, such as information and clarification on the categories of data and data subjects affected, the measures taken within the 72 hours deadline after becoming aware and much more.

We are familiar with the specific methodology for the assessment of the risk level and can assist you in the preparation of this important information.
