If your network or other digital security is breached should you keep quiet or should you tell a relevant authority such as the FBI. Keeping the breach secret is understandable, as who wants clients, business partners and Wall Street (for publicly traded companies) to know that your data was compromised.
However USA Today writes that FBI director Robert Mueller said he understood those concerns and promised the FBI would be more sensitive in responding to computer hackings. “We also recognize that putting on raid jackets and rushing in may not be the best answer in situations such as those,” he said.
Businesses must overcome those fears, he said, and be more forthcoming in reporting computer hacking to authorities. “Maintaining a code of silence will not benefit you or your company in the long run,” he said. “We cannot investigate if we are not aware of the problem.”
