Want to know what a breach is going to cost?

When writing a HIPAA-related whitepaper last week for the fine folks at Realtimepublishers.com (TONS of free papers and books on IT & security) I came across two good sites for calculating the cost of a data breach...VERY enlightening numbers from tools that have finally come of age.

Keep these tools in mind when you're selling security and compliance to management (I know, it's sad you even have to):

Becky Herold's Privacy Breach Impact Calculator (the original from 2003 - I've always known Becky was ahead of her time...that's why I really like working with her!)

Darwin's Tech//404® Data Loss Cost Calculator
