www.thestorystore.me uses an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate to secure the admin panel. SSL ensures secure data transfer between user browsers and the server, making it difficult for hackers to breach the connection or spoof the info.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Where a privacy data breach is known to have occurred (or is suspected) any member of The Story Store staff who becomes aware of this must, within 24 hours, make an urgent assessment of the situation.

The Information that should be provided (if known) at this point includes:

  1. When the breach occurred (time and date)
  2. Description of the breach (type of personal information involved)
  3. Cause of the breach (if known) otherwise how it was discovered
  4. Whether corrective action has occurred to remedy or ameliorate the breach (or suspected breach)

Assess and determine the potential impact

Once awarw of the information above, the members of The Story Store must consider whether a privacy data breach has (or is likely to have) occurred and make a preliminary judgement as to its severity.

Criteria for determining whether a privacy data breach has occurred

  1. Is personal information involved?
  2. Is the personal information of a sensitive nature?
  3. Has there been unauthorised access to personal information, or unauthorised disclosure of personal information, or loss of personal information in circumstances where access to the information is likely to occur?

Criteria for determining the severity

  1. The type and extent of personal information involved
  2. Whether multiple individuals have been affected
  3. Whether the information is protected by any security measures (password protection or encryption)
  4. The person or kinds of people who now have access
  5. Whether there is (or could there be) a real risk of serious harm to the affected individuals
  6. Whether there could be media or stakeholder attention as a result of the breach or suspect breach

Further steps to be taken:

  • ensure that immediate corrective action is taken, if this has not already occurred (corrective action may include: retrieval or recovery of the personal information, ceasing unauthorised access, shutting down or isolating the affected system); and
  • submit a report to Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK. The report must contain the following:
    • Description of breach or suspected breach
    • Action taken
    • Outcome of action
    • Processes that have been implemented to prevent a repeat of the situation.
    • Recommendation that no further action is necessary
