We are pleased to announce that client beta testing has begun for the Davis Polk Data Breach Notification Resource Portal—a secure online suite of tools designed to assist clients in preparing and planning for a possible data breach, and help them comply with state and federal law obligations to inform customers, regulators, and law enforcement.  Utilizing a simple, query-based portal, the Notification Assessment Tool allows clients to receive rapid privileged legal advice on notification obligations following a breach, covering regulatory notification obligations in 48 states, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act (“GLB”), thereby providing clients with resources that:

    • Enhance their ability to comply with regulatory requirements for cybersecurity preparedness, with specific focus on the New York Department of Financial Services Cybersecurity Regulations
    • Facilitate fast and effective incident response after a breach.
    • Ensure that clients stay up to date on changes in breach notification laws.
    • Alert clients to significant legal and regulatory developments relating to data breach notification.

If you are interested in joining the small group of clients who are beta testing the Portal, in order to provide us with feedback on improvements and additional features, please click www.breachportal.com for more information.
