Tozny CEO talks security breaches with Charlie Kawasaki and Oregon Business. “Prevention is actually by far the cheapest way to mitigate.”
Oregon’s rules for data breach reporting changed a year ago to require businesses and government agencies to notify the Attorney General’s office when a breach occurred impacting more than 250 Oregonians. The breaches are then logged into a public database, which lists suspected breach dates and a copy of the notice sent to consumers explaining what happened.
To learn more about different types of breaches — and what businesses can do to prevent them — Oregon Business asked Charlie Kawasaki, CTO of communications systems manufacturer PacStar, and Isaac Potoczny-Jones, CEO of Tozny, a Portland data encryption company, to talk us through three breaches listed on the new state data base.
