New Massachusetts Data Privacy Act Goes into effect March 1, 2010

The Comprehensive Identity Theft Prevention Regulation (CMR 17) establishes a standard set of regulations for businesses to protect and store Massachusetts residents’ personal information.

NENGroup has put together several documents to view or download, including a 201 CMR 17 compliance checklist; a sample 201 CMR 17 Comprehensive Information Security Program to help you understand the type of document that needs to be created; a 201 CMR 17 Personal Information Discovery Form to help you and your team determine where and in what form personal information may exist; and a copy of the 201 CMR 17 Regulations (PDF).

But there are benefits to strong network security beyond compliance with the new law.

NENGroup, as one of the leading full-service IT companies in the Boston area, can help local companies meet the regulations set forth by the new personal data protection law. As part of our IT solutions services, NENGroup offers comprehensive computer security services, including secure user authentication protocols, secure access control measures, encryption tactics and firewall protection. Companies can enjoy peace of mind knowing NENGroup will set up a system that provides the utmost protection for their customers’ personal information as well as adheres to the new state law.

The new regulations require businesses to complete internal and external security risk assessments prior to the effective date. In light of this, NENGroup encourages companies to reach out to one of their skilled IT specialists as soon as possible.

There is no technology available that can change employee behavior, and that is what will really make the difference. Educating companies and their teams about the perils and pitfalls of personal computer use can really make a difference. We hope that this information will help you to do just that.
