Course Description

Privacy Management is a must today. Clients, employees and other stakeholders expect their information to be held private when given to an organization. For the same reason, New York State recently passed the ‘Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data’ Security Act (SHIELD Act) in October 2019 and the provisions mandating reasonable security requirements go into effect in 2020.

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. The Act does not create a private right of action, but the New York State Attorney General is authorized to bring enforcement actions, and violations may result in civil penalties. 

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. Register for this free CPE webinar to learn more about this SHIELD act and how it impacts your practice ?
