New Wiki Promises Breach Training For Business Execs

BreachCenter.com hopes to play host to discussions on breach prevention, response
A new Website and wiki launched today, promising to help educate business management on breach prevention and response practices.

BreachCenter.com is operated by risk management services vendor Intersections in association with the Financial Services Roundtable and the Identity Theft Assistance Center (ITAC), a nonprofit organization formed by the financial services industry to fight identity theft.

The site and its forums are geared to helping the business side of the enterprise come to grips with breach issues, says Anne Wallace, president of ITAC. "There are a lot of technical resources out there to help with breaches, but not very much for the business user," she says.

In addition to providing resources like articles, white papers, and case studies, BreachCenter.com has been designed to promote open discussion, opinions, news, and reviews of data breach recovery services, according to John Scanlon, chief operating officer at Intersections.

The site is meant to be a "free community of interest," with its content comprised almost entirely of participant collaboration and input. "The site's wiki pages, forums, and blogs encourage the community of breach response professionals and victims to collaborate to define the issues, suggest the consensus view, and point corporations toward the path to effective breach response," the partners said.

BreachCenter.com registration is free.
