On October 23, 2019, the Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (the SHIELD Act) went into effect. The New York law imposes data breach notification requirements on any business that owns or licenses certain private information of New York residents, regardless of whether it conducts business in New York. In March 2020, the second part of the Act goes into effect, requiring businesses to develop, implement and maintain a data security program to protect private information. Through this course, attorneys can gain an understanding of the SHIELD Act with an emphasis on key actions businesses should take to comply, the penalties for not doing so, and cybersecurity best practices to mitigate loss.
