Scott L. Vernick was quoted in the NewsWorks article, "Philly Law Firm Releases Mobile App for Dealing with Data Breaches." Full text can be found in the January 19, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is noted below.

With data breaches all over the headlines recently – and seemingly constantly, Fox Rothschild has introduced an iPhone app to provide businesses with a map on how to respond after a breach.

"This would make their lives easier," said Scott Vernick, a noted privacy attorney and Fox partner who spearheaded the app’s development.

"What we wanted to do was create, in one app, easy access to these statutes," said Vernick, referring to the various state laws covering data breach liability. "So that lawyers who deal in this area, particularly in-house lawyers or compliance professionals, would have a one-stop-shop app to find this information."
