Fox Rothschild has released Data Breach 411, an app designed to help businesses navigate various state laws regarding notification requirements after a breach.
Noted privacy attorney and Fox partner Scott L. Vernick says, “Data breaches can severely impact a company's reputation and have debilitating consequences to businesses big and small.”
“Data breaches, including theft and data loss, are happening on a regular basis,” he noted.
“Our app is a ‘one stop shop’ for in-house counsel and privacy officers to instantly access the relevant state-specific details on what they need to do, who they need to notify, when and how,” Vernick continued.
“The ability to access these state rules at your fingertips can make all the difference in terms of what’s at stake for an organization: loss of reputational integrity, public trust and business, and time-consuming and costly remediation efforts,” he said.
