Security Incident Reporting Procedure

Posted on

The majority of data security breaches are innocent and unintentional such as the user not ‘logging out’ of their desktop or laptop computer at the end of the day. However, ‘near misses’ where no actual harm results from the incident, should still be reported and analysed to look for possible ways of preventing an actual incident occurring in the future.

North Yorkshire Police (NYP) has a responsibility to monitor all data security incidents that occur within the organisation that may breach security and/or confidentiality of business information. NYP also needs to ensure that all incidents are identified, reported and monitored.

This document details the process of identifying, recording, handling and reviewing data and information technology incidents.
