The partnership announcement comes on the heels of stringent drafts, revisions, and directives published by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Transportation Security Administration, the New York Department of Financial Services, and the India Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), the latest in a growing number of laws globally requiring proactive preparation for incidents and rapid notification upon their occurrence, regardless of the information involved. With over 180 privacy, cybersecurity, and data breach regulations across 128 countries, and more on the way, businesses around the globe are scrambling to grow their teams at the pace of regulatory developments.
The regulatory risk is compounded by customer pressure on businesses to prioritize their privacy and security. Consequently, the security team’s efforts in an incident represent less than 30% of the total cost, with over 70% attributed to legal and privacy costs. Teams are juggling as many as hundreds of incidents a week, which is costing them millions of dollars. This has led to over 67% of growing companies receiving an increase in cyber insurance premiums, tied to new strict requirements to preserve the ability to make claims. It’s no surprise then that CEOs are citing privacy and cybersecurity incidents as one of the biggest threats to the top line.
Privacy and data protection are now a business imperative, and privacy, legal, and security teams are under pressure to scale to enable the business. However, scaling through additional headcount is not only cost prohibitive, but also difficult given the limited number of skilled privacy and security professionals.

Their first joint offering provides CISOs, CPOs, and GCs with best-in-class technology including on-demand regulatory intelligence and operational expertise from the industry leaders.

Teams need to recognize the future of work demands solutions that combine automation with expertise,” said Chris Donewald, Director and Managing Counsel of Privacy, Trust and Partnerships at Affirm. “Solutions like these that integrate security workflows with the expensive legal and privacy aspects of incidents should be foundational for every security and privacy team.”
