PestWorld - September/October 2017 - 25

No industry is immune to
an attacker's exploits, and no
organization is too big or too
small to become a target.

Credit card and ID theft monitoring -
Cost: $11,500 (est.)
Statistically speaking, while only 20 percent
of affected individuals typically take advantage of this, you're required to provide it, for
12 months in most states.
Regulatory defense and costs -
Cost: $20,000-1.7 million (est.)
Just about every federal agency is claiming data breach oversight these days.
Depending on your industry and breach
circumstances, you could be investigated,
fined or formal proceedings could be initiated against your company post-breach -
by any number of agencies, including any
number of 50 states attorney general, the
Department of Health and Human Services,
the Securities and Exchange Commission,
the Federal Trade Commission or the Federal
Communications Commission.
Payment card industry - Cost: $387,500
for PCI investigations; $50,000 for card reissuance (est.)

The payment card industry has its own regulatory body, made up of Visa, Mastercard,
American Express and Discover, to investigate your data breach and assess you fines
for each breached credit card number,
assessments for fraudulent charges and
credit card reissuance.
The first party expenses and fines incurred
by businesses post-data breach, especially
small to mid-sized businesses, are enough to
put any organization in the red. Speak to your
insurance broker to help you determine what
puts your business most at risk for a breach and
what your costs could be when the inevitable
happens to you.  ●
