My colleagues Mark McCrearyAmy Purcell, and Scott Vernick have created Data Breach 411, an app that helps companies affected by a data breach quickly and efficiently navigate the various state legal requirements governing breach notifications and related concerns.

Features include:

  • State Breach Notification Statutes: Alphabetical listing of the 46 states that have data breach notification statutes in place and links to relevant information.
  • HIPAA/HITECH Statutes: Breach notification rules and other information related to the loss or theft of personal health information.
  • General Privacy Law Resources: Links to Fox’s Privacy Compliance & Data Security Blog and its HIPAA, HITECH and Health Information Technology Blog as well as links to credit reporting agencies, monitoring services, and the FTC. There’s also, a section on COPPA – the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act – and relevant information about the mining of data originating with minors.

You can download it here for free. Or look for it on iTunes.
