StoredTech Gets Serious About the SHIELD Act
NY-based MSP Helps Clients Maintain Compliance Under New Laws
QUEENSBURY, N.Y. , November 14, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Stored Technology Solutions Inc., a managed services provider (MSP), is helping businesses familiarize themselves with the State of New York’s SHIELD Act. Inspired by the new online privacy policies instated by the European Union, this act places constraints on any business that collects the data of New York citizens.
Signed into law in June 2019, the SHIELD Act serves two primary purposes: to amend New York’s data breach notification statute and adding requirements for businesses to protect the personal and private information of New York residents. The legislation defines personal and private information as names, social security numbers, financial account numbers, usernames, email addresses, passwords, biometric data and health information covered under HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Also included in the act are details on how quickly businesses compromised by a breach need to notify the State of New York and the people affected. Even if you are not a New York-based company, you still must adhere to this act if you own computerized data of a New York resident.
