This is known as the Data Breach Response Plan and is just one of the assessments needed in securing your business against malware and lowering your risks.
Protecting Your Data & Reputation
Once you know your risks and your business has been assessed you need to look at what ongoing protections are available. Two of the best security and security visibility tools are Security Access Management(SAM) and Unified Security Management (USM).

While USM provides complete site-wide transparency on your IT infrastrucutre, highlighting any suspicious activity or potential data breaches which may have occurred.
