With greater dependency on the Internet, more personally identifiable information (i.e. full name, birth date, social security number, credit card numbers) is out in cyberspace. To protect consumers, states are starting to develop more stringent legislation for businesses involved in electronically transferring this type of data.
Massachusetts and Nevada are the first two states to pass legislation requiring businesses within their respective states to encrypt any personally identifiable data transferred electronically (i.e. email, website, etc.) outside their secure systems.
DSC’s data recovery service, DSC/DR, is the perfect solution to ensure compliance with these laws, offering double encryption of all data. Check out our latest press release about how our solutions are helping companies comply with these new laws.
Many states are expected to follow the examples of Massachusetts and Nevada in the near future. Even if your state has not passed similar legislation, make sure you are protecting your consumers’ data before it is too late.
The DSC team would be glad to talk to you about what these laws require and determine what you need to do to comply. Feel free to contact us.
