The most obvious example is when a building has sustained damage from an environmental hazard. In this case, details about the event, such as the name of the polluting substance, could be exposed. An error message posted in this scenario could read something like this: “Due to a malfunction in the water filtration system, a detailed error message was posted.” This example displays a scenario where information about a building’s environmental characteristics could be exposed in a public message. Public information about the characteristics of a building, such as its address or technical details about its construction, could be exposed as a result of an error message.
In a scenario where there is no human input, then the error message could be sent to the system itself. The error message would then get posted on the building’s public feed.
Example: Error message from a monitoring tool
An error message posted in this scenario could read something like this: “Due to a malfunction in the water filtration system, a detailed error message was posted.”
Public Information Exposure Scenarios
Public information exposure scenarios are widely varied. Some of these scenarios include:
-A building is damaged by an environmental hazard, such as a flood or fire.
-A public message is posted on the building’s sign during construction.
-An error message is posted to a building in response to a malfunction in its system.
The most important thing to remember when it comes to public information exposure scenarios is that they are largely dependent on how your organization chooses to handle the situation. The best way to avoid this type of risk is to implement policies and procedures about how errors should be handled, what types of messages and content are appropriate, and what security measures must be followed in order for your organization’s data privacy laws to be met.
