This blog, written in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish includes opinions, comments on recent news, laws or other developments, research notes and conference reports in the area of information security breaches, mainly in the United States, Europe and Latin America.

It also features a “Library” that we are gradually building and that will include links to new or upcoming data breach notification bills and the major laws in Europe, Canada, the U.S. and Latin America, as well as to  technical standards and guidelines. It already features recent reports and surveys, practical guides and other publications, blogs, websites and portals covering the specific area of information security, security breaches and data breach notification laws. It also includes a list of upcoming and recurring information security and privacy conferences, calls for papers, and news with, soon, conference presentations and reports, webinars and newsletters.

It should be of interest to company executives concerned with information security issues in their business, as well as to professionals practicing in the field of information security, privacy and data protection, along with the interested general public.

The blog’s editor is Cédric Laurant, and Marie-Andrée Weiss and him the main authors. They are both attorneys with a dual European and US legal background.

We have recently created a public Linkedin group for professionals interested in the legal, public policy and technical aspects of information security breaches and data breach notification laws, from a global and comparative perspectives.  Check our “Global Information Security Breach Professionals” group on LinkedIn.com.
