Co3 Systems Expands Breach Regulation Coverage to Include Latin America and Recent Changes in the EU

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- Co3 Systems, the leader in Incident Response Management Systems, today announced that the company's flagship Privacy Module now includes complete coverage for privacy regulations throughout Latin America and expanded regulations within the European Union (EU). Co3 continuously updates its platform to cover the latest changes around the globe.

Enhancements in the latest Co3 product release include: Latin American privacy breach regulations: Complete regulatory coverage for Latin America -- including specific requirements for Argentina, Bahamas, Columbia, Costa Rica, Mexico and Uruguay. EU regulatory updates: Expanded guidance and best practices regarding updated French and Belgian privacy breach regulations. This update accommodates unique aspects of France's breach notification requirements regarding incidents that involve remote payment card data.

Co3's industry leading knowledgebase of privacy breach regulations and incident response best practices is continuously updated based on the expertise of Co3 staff, industry experts, and the Co3 customer base.

Bloomberg's Bureau of National Affairs recently distributed a report highlighting the significant changes in Latin American data privacy legislation. Along with those countries that already require breach notification, other countries -- like Argentina, Bahamas, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, and Uruguay -- are on the move, as they now require organizations to abide by new privacy laws.

"Firms that want to tap into the rapidly expanding digital economies across Latin America will need to ensure compliance with these new privacy breach requirements," said John Bruce, CEO at Co3 Systems. "It's a fast-changing environment and Co3 removes the burden of monitoring this by immediately integrating privacy mandates with best practices for preparedness and response to a data breach. Customers can remain focused on maximizing their opportunities in this rapidly growing region, and count on Co3 to keep them compliant in the event of a breach." Total Security Incident ResponseCo3's Privacy Module was the first daily use and preparedness tool for privacy incidents and is considered today as the industry standard. It provides an easy, automated way to ensure consistency and accountability -- across teams, organizations and external stakeholders -- in managing incidents that concern personally identifiable information (PII). Co3's Security Module extends the capability to manage response to security events such as malware infections, phishing-related compromise, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, device or Intellectual Property theft, and system intrusions. Together, the Modules provide the most comprehensive solution to prepare, assess, manage and mitigate privacy breaches and security incidents.
