Co3 Systems announced Tuesday that it's expanding its Privacy Module software to include definitions, regulations and news about data breaches in the European Union.

The Cambridge, Mass. company said its regulatory kit already covers U.S. and Canadian privacy rules.

"The U.S. and European systems of privacy regulations are quite complex in their own right. Trying to span both is made more complex as each has a fundamental difference on the definition of privacy," said Co3's chief executive, John Bruce, in a press release. "The cost and uncertainty that this environment creates can be a severe impediment to international business growth. Co3 offers a way to reduce this complexity and completely automate the process of preparing for and ultimately managing breaches and their business impact, independent of territorial wrinkles that arise each day as regulations and guidance evolve."

Co3's Privacy Module software is licensed annually and its cost depends on the number of people using the product.
