Use Case: Executive Board

Matchlight Reduces Data Breach Response Time

Data breaches happen. What matters most is how you respond in the event of a data breach. Yahoo’s breach in 2014, which wasn’t discovered until 2016, resulted in an immediate drop in share prices and significant customer attrition. Meanwhile, Target’s 2013 breach resulted in a $10M class action lawsuit and three months of declining stock prices.* Both of these companies rebounded, but that isn’t always the end result. The speed and manner in which a company responds to a breach can have a significant impact on revenue, shareholders, customer relationships, and business operations.

In the wake of a data breach being exposed online, there are many elements that comprise an appropriate crisis response. Companies need to consider crisis communications, public perception, and compliance issues that could arise from the breach. But at the foundation to being able to formulate the appropriate response is the ability to be notified immediately in the event of a breach, so that you can make these decisions effectively and without delay.

Matchlight is continuously and securely monitoring the open, deep, and dark web for your sensitive data. Using our patented digital fingerprinting technology, we detect exact matches of your data across the web and provide real-time notifications, allowing you to mitigate reputational damage by acting as quickly as possible to formulate a response.
