Data Breach Response



The purpose of the policy is to establish the goals and the vision for the breach response process. This policy will clearly define to whom it applies and under what circumstances, and it will include the definition of a breach, staff roles and responsibilities, standards and metrics (e.g., to enable prioritization of the incidents), as well as reporting, remediation, and feedback mechanisms. The policy shall be well publicized and made easily available to all personnel whose duties involve data privacy and security protection.

Evangel University Information Technology is committed to protecting Evangel University's employees, partners, and the university from illegal or damaging actions by individuals, either knowingly or unknowingly.
