Every modern business will experience a data breach at some point in its lifecycle. Reporting it to regulators and/or individuals, depending on the circumstances and nature of the data breach, is often required by law. 

But many businesses still fail at the first hurdle and fail to act with the appropriate speed once a breach has been discovered, which could lead to harsher regulatory fines and greater reputational damage. 

Breach Assistant is an innovative and unique mobile platform developed with deep expertise within global law firm CMS, arming businesses with information and guidance to more quickly assemble and act once a data breach has been identified.

Easily accessible from the smartphone in your pocket, Breach Assistant guides those responsible for data privacy within your business through the process, offering advice relevant to a wide range of sectors and jurisdictions, particularly across Europe.

Breach Assistant is available to download for iPhone and Android from the app store. The platform comprises a free version offering practical advice across 19 European countries, and a premium version available on a subscription basis. A yearly subscription package starts at only EUR 8,500 for 10 user licences.
