Data Breaches & Victim Service Providers: Considerations for Developing Effective Policies

General Material
Published Date
January, 2019

Many victim service providers now maintain electronic records that contain detailed personally identifying information (PII) about people who have received services. Because confidentiality and privacy are essential to the safety and well-being of survivors, and because electronic systems are vulnerable to data breaches, the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) now requires all grantees to have a data breach response plan in place.

This page from NNEDV's Safety Net Project outlines considerations for programs to discuss in order to best manage data and create solid data breach policies that prioritize survivor safety and privacy.
