International law firm Eversheds Sutherland has released a new mobile app named BreachLawWATCH, which allows users to access data breach statutes across various jurisdictions, including Europe, Asia and the United States.
Available on Google Play and the App Store, the app is organised by jurisdiction, and includes several categories, such as notification requirements, definitions of personal information and breach of security, and timeframes for notification.
Michael Bahar, US Partner and Co-Leader of the Eversheds Sutherland global Cybersecurity and Data Privacy practice, said:
“Since data breaches of various severity are increasingly becoming an issue, and with the regulatory environment growing in complexity all the time, our goal was to develop an app with information our clients and companies can readily access through one click of a button, even when corporate systems fail.”
Paula Barratt, his UK counterpart, added:
“With data being created across all industries at a faster rate than ever before, and with the development of unprecedented ways to collect and use information growing, the issue of data privacy and cybersecurity has never been higher on the agenda.”
