THE SHIELD Act is now law in New York state. Are you covered? Effective October 23, 2019, The Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (SHIELD) requires organizations that maintain private information concerning New York state residents comply with expanded reporting requirements for notifying impacted parties in the event of a breach.
The SHIELD Act applies to any person or entity with the private information of a New York resident, not just to those that conduct business in New York State. By demonstrating compliance under any of the recognized security control frameworks, businesses can de facto claim compliance with the Shield Act and therefore minimize the risk of prosecution as a result of a data breach. Come and learn how.
