Are you ready for the NY SHIELD Act?

We’ll start with the good news. States within the US are starting to implement

privacy regulations to protect our individual data. As individuals, this is good for us.

As leaders of nonprofits, small businesses or any entity that collects data as part of

doing business, these laws add new responsibilities and potential liabilities.

New York passed the (awkward acronym award winner) “Stop Hacks and Improve

Electronic Data Security Act” (SHIELD) Act on October 23, 2019, and the law went

into effect in March of 2020. 

Not surprisingly, minimal attention was paid to SHIELD Act compliance last March, as New York State was in the throes of the Covid pandemic. A year later, however, organizations are starting to receive audit requests for SHIELD compliance. 

Check out this video for an overview of what the SHIELD Act is:
