Sample Breach Notice to Media

  • 1.  Sample Breach Notice to Media

    My organization has been fortunate not to have to provide published notice through the media of a breach. We will likely have to do so for a very peculiar situation soon. I'd appreciate not having to reinvent the wheel if anyone could share a template for what is sent to a media outlet when public notice is required. I thought we might just write it like a press release, but then decided there might be a better way and didn't find a sample in the association's site. Thank you
