Every business needs to ensure they remain in compliance with all data breach laws and provide the required notifications if a breach is detected. Revision Legal ( can be of assistance with this.
“A data breach of any size is of concern, as it puts the company at risk. Prevention is always best, and Revision Legal ( understands this. However, there are times when a breach does occur, regardless of what the company did to protect against it. When this is the case, we are here to help clients respond to the attack and ensure they are in compliance with all laws,” John Di Giacomo, spokesperson for Revision Legal ( states.
Commerce is no longer limited to a company’s immediate region. Thanks to the internet, a business can now serve customers clear across the globe. The world is their customer base, and businesses appreciate this. However, it does make things more complicated when a data breach occurs, as both state and international laws must be complied with when responding to the breach.
“Revision Legal understands the steps that must be taken following a breach to ensure these laws are complied with. Individuals must be notified following a breach, but federal laws regarding these notifications only cover those in the healthcare or financial industries. State laws typically cover who must be notified, how to notify affected parties, what is considered a data breach and more. We walk clients through the steps to ensure nothing is overlooked and they remain in compliance,” Di Giacomo continues.
Laws regarding data breaches are constantly changing, as more information is obtained about this crime. Data breach attorneys work to ensure their clients are protected at every stage. …
