Why Should You Attend:
With the recent increases in identity and credit card theft, many states have enacted regulations to enforce companies protect the information they store. For example, Massachusetts Regulation (201 CMR 17.00) is impressive, it extends to companies having information on Massachusetts residents whether or not the company is doing business in Massachusetts, and has already had impact nationally. Many other states also have recently enacted similar regulations. There are no industry, private sector or out-of-state exemptions and no de-minimus number of employees under the MA regulation. Under the Regulation, every person or company that owns or licenses personal information about a Massachusetts resident must develop, implement, maintain and monitor a comprehensive written information security program. ("WISP"). The provisions of the Regulation concerning WISPs are both broad and very granular at the same time and effectively demand you have appropriate policies, procedures and techniques where necessary.
This webinar is focused on a practical approach for you to achieve compliance. First, if you have personal information on Massachusetts residents you should make sure you comply and create your WISP. Second, If your company stores any personal information (electronic or hard copy), regardless of the state of residency, you should have a written security plan. It will minimize risk, exposure, liabilities and costs. If you are a CPA, Legal, Managed Services or other firms with numerous clients, your fiduciary responsibility suggests that you should notify your clients of the regulation.
Rather than trying to start from scratch, this session will provide you with a better understanding of regulations pertaining to storing personal information, techniques to protect that information, and an outline for your WISP. as well as additional You may also want to consider a survey of all your partners and their clients.
