Planning for the Morning After
Computerworld has an interesting article up about what to do when your company's data security has been breached. Some key points in the article include a to-do list (rely on your plan, work with the right people, identify the problem and dig deeper, communicat with stakeholders, connect with colleagues, support your people, move the organization ahead, and take a final look back) as well as a not-to-do list (don't create a power vacuum, don't promise what you can't deliver, don't push too much change too fast, and don't be too hands on) for companies seeking to survive a data security breach. Definitely recommended reading for anyone interested in practical advice for what to do when something inevitably goes wrong.
