PA Consulting's Sharad Patel, data privacy and cyber security expert, discusses data breaches with Jessica Tasman-Jones in FT Board Director.

Commenting on this, Sharad explains: "Not all cyber attacks result in a data breach. Privacy enhancing technologies, such as encryption, anonymisation and pseudonymisation, can prevent a breach."

He goes on to say: "Organisations will need to notify relevant authorities, understand the impact on individuals whose data has been compromised, notify them and provide them with adequate support."
