Privacy Breach Impact Calculator
How much could a customer privacy breach impact your business? Most businesses are not aware of the many factors that can contribute to the financial impact of a data
privacy breach. This calculator, based on the expanded one I created for the Privacy Management Toolkit Version 1, provides an example of some of the items an
organization should consider when creating breach incident response and notification plans, and estimating the potential business impacts of a data privacy breach. The
expanded Privacy Breach Impact Calculator within my toolkit includes an additional 15 items that should be considered. It is a great tool that can be used to raise the
awareness of what the true, long-lasting costs, of a privacy breach really can be.

Latest Privacy Studies
I really love this page! Sometimes it takes me what seems like an eternity to find recent studies about specific privacy issues. Nymity provides not only pointers to the studies,
but also analysis that provides guidance to organizations to help them learn from the study and to mitigate privacy risk in their own organizations.
