5. Notification and Management of Personal Data Breaches
Based on the GDPR a personal data breach is defined as a breach of security that leads to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.
In the case of a personal data breach, the Data Controller shall without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, notify the personal data breach to the Supervisory Authority competent (in Hungary: NAIH), unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. Where the notification to the Supervisory Authority is not made within 72 hours, it shall be accompanied by reasons for the delay. Where, and in so far as, it is not possible to provide the information at the same time, the information may be provided in phases without undue further delay.
The notification to the Supervisory Authority shall at least:
- describe the nature of the personal data breach including where possible, the categories and approximate number of data subjects concerned and the categories and approximate number of personal data records concerned;
- communicate the name and contact details of the Data Controller
- describe the likely consequences of the personal data breach;
- describe the measures taken or proposed to be taken by the Data Controller to address the personal data breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects.
Data Controller shall document any personal data breaches, comprising the facts relating to the personal data breach, its effects and the remedial action taken. Data in the document will be stored for 5 years from the date of the observation of data breach incident.
