Clifford Chance launches Cyber Assist app
Mobile app provides clients with fast practical legal support to mitigate risk following cyber attack
Leading international law firm Clifford Chance has launched Clifford Chance Cyber Assist, a mobile app which is a first port of call for clients in the event of an attack. Available to download from Google and Apple app stores, Clifford Chance Cyber Assist takes users through the complex web of requirements that regulators around the world expect businesses to take in the critical hours and days following an attack.
Developed by Clifford Chance’s lawyers and technologists, Clifford Chance Cyber Assist connects businesses with a global team of Clifford Chance cyber specialists around the world at the touch of a button – day or night.
In addition, the app provides users with an overview of the cyber landscape across multiple jurisdictions, with information on the latest laws and regulations across Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, the UK and US. This information is drawn from Clifford Chance reports such as "Cyber Security: what regulators are saying around the globe", Clifford Chance's latest global legal and regulatory cyber briefing.
Jonathan Kewley, Co-Head of Clifford Chance's Tech Group says: "Cyber is now a legal risk, not just an IT issue. Cyber attacks are on the agenda of every government, board and law maker globally. The risks for businesses are unprecedented and growing, and fines for failing to respond correctly to an attack are eyewatering. Our Clifford Chance Cyber Assist will help our clients to prepare for and respond to attacks: it's a cyber emergency call."
Clifford Chance Cyber Assist adds to Clifford Chance's growing stable of tailored solutions available to clients and follows the release of the firm's Dawn Raids app in February 2018. The launch of Clifford Chance Cyber Assist continues to highlight Clifford Chance's use of the latest technology to deliver services to clients in the most efficient way.
Clifford Chance's Tech Group comprises a global, cross-practice team of over 400 lawyers with extensive industry expertise. As well as representing market-leading players in the Tech sector, the group helps a wide range of clients across all industry sectors to explore the opportunities and risks that technology brings.
