First we protect it but not handling it. Facebook Cloudflare and Google are the ones dealing with data. This is typical of most sites today. We have data on web traffic served on our site, but thats all.
First the site goes on IP address lock down preventing any further damage until we access the issue. This block is at the Cloudflare level essentially blocking all external traffic to the site. From that point our engineers will assess the issue and notify all users regardless of if we believe their data was breached within 24 hours.
Facebook, Cloudflare and Google provide us data.
Only fill in if you are not human
