The New York SHIELD act goes into effect on March 21. It applies to any business that owns or licenses computerized data, which includes private information of NY residents. Because all employers retain this information – think employee social security numbers / bank account numbers for direct deposit -- this impacts all NY businesses. The SHIELD Act requires businesses to develop, implement and maintain “reasonable safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity” of data by implementing administrative, technical and physical safeguards. Unsure if your business or those of your clients comply? Sandwire’s ComplyRely group provides compliance guidance, including specialized scans that meet the NY Shield Act / NIST standard.
