Fox Rothschild LLP is excited to announce that Data Breach 411, an iPhone app that delivered a comprehensive resource on state breach notification statutes and related materials, was named one of LawFirmMobile’s best new mobile apps for 2014.  You can download the Data Breach 411 mobile application for your compatible iPhone or iPad here or by searching “Data Breach 411” in the Apple App Store.

LawFirmMobile included Data Breach 411 on its list of the top five apps, specifically citing the appeal and breadth of the app’s content. “Data breaches occur more frequently yet the state by state patchwork of laws makes this area of law extremely difficult to understand. The app lists 46 states with data breach laws, HIPAA/HITECH statutes and links to related information such as COPPA and credit monitoring services.”

Currently 46 states have laws in place addressing how businesses and organizations should prepare for and respond to the loss or theft of data. “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,” said Scott L. Vernick, partner at Fox Rothschild and chair of the Privacy and Data Security Practice Group who spearheaded the creation of the app.

According to LawFirmMobile, 36 firms in the AmLaw 200 and 28 firms in the Global 100 have built an app. At a time when many law firms are still determining what their mobile technology and social media strategies are, Fox has developed two iOS applications and has at least two more in early development stages.

LawFirmMobile’s report looked for the best new large firm mobile apps that filled a gap or took a new approach to provide value to users. Additional criteria included content, design and innovation.
