Train wreck 2013 - cartoon by Chris SlaneWe held a half-day workshop on 1 May 2013 in Wellington at the Intercontinental about data breaches - how to avoid them and how to clean up if you have one. We had speakers whose organisations had experienced major data breaches and they told the audience what they had learned from it.  We are in the process of developing a Toolkit - a summary of the discussion.
