Data breach Youth care

This spring, RTL News reports that personal data of thousands of children had fallen into the hands of third parties. Youth care Utrecht had changed its name. For that reason, the old internet domain registration was not renewed. If a domain registration is not renewed, it will become available and third parties can register it again. Two whistleblowers had re-registered the domain name and had reactivated the mail address. As a result emails were received from employees still using the old e-mail address.

As a company, it is easy to anticipate these situations. Do not only keep internal policies about trademarks (how and what to register), but do the same for domain names and social media. Which domain names are registered? Which extensions? Against which infringement action is to be taken and what rules apply if a domain name is to be not renewed?
