Customer Breach Support

Protecting your customers, reputation, and brand through a data breach

Increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks can catch even well-governed organizations off guard, exposing customers to possible identity theft and fraud, and threatening the organization's reputation, customer base, and revenue.

Fast, effective support through an end-to-end service

Customer Breach Support is a Deloitte managed service that provides your organization and its customers with fast, effective breach response capabilities. There are two core components to the service. First, a specialist prebreach program ensures all critical elements of breach response planning are in place and ready in advance of an incident. Second, in the event of a data breach we help to notify, support, and protect your end consumers and their identities, with the objective of mitigating operational, reputational, and financial risks.
