Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has won the “Innovation in Digitizing Legal Services” category of the Financial Times’ North America Innovative Lawyers Awards. The firm was selected for its Data Portal, which consists of a groundbreaking suite of tools that help clients address business critical cybersecurity and AI issues, including:

  • The Cyber Breach Notification Assessment Tool: Allows subscribers to rapidly assess notification obligations by answering a series of questions about a hypothetical or actual cyber incident. The tool then generates a detailed report of the applicable breach notification obligations and generates templates for the actual notifications.
  • The AI Regulatory Tracker: An interactive database of the latest AI regulatory developments that assists subscribers with future-proofing their AI programs and building models that will help withstand scrutiny of future AI regulatory regimes.
  • The Cybersecurity Enforcement Tracker: A continually updated and searchable database of regulatory actions and civil litigation brought against companies that have experienced a data breach. The tracker enables subscribers to monitor cyber enforcement and litigation trends and draw predictions about the impact of actual or hypothetical cyber incidents.

Portal subscribers gain access to a dynamic ecosystem that is regularly updated to reflect the latest changes in breach notification laws and regulatory guidance, enabling users to gain a better understanding of their own exposures to various cyber and AI risks.

The winners of the awards were announced at the FT’s annual awards dinner in New York on December 5.
