Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 22, 2010
Eze Castle Integration, Inc., a leading provider of IT services, consulting and technology to investment management firms, today announced a free webinar that will provide concrete details on the new Massachusetts data privacy law and how hedge funds can ensure regulatory compliance. The webinar, “Protecting Your Fund: Complying with MA 201 CMR 17”, will clarify the current hype and confusion regarding the new law. The event will occur on Tuesday, April 27, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. ET.
The Massachusetts data privacy law, MA 201 CMR 17.00, applies to any financial institution that has customers, employees or partners residing within Massachusetts, as all personally identifiable information that belongs to Massachusetts residents must now be protected both at rest and in motion. The expert panel includes Beth Boland, partner at Bingham McCutchen; Matt Bretan, director of strategic consulting at Eze Castle Integration; and Paul DiBlasi, vice president of alternative investment at IntraLinks. Together, they will explain the new law and what hedge funds must do to fulfill its privacy and protection mandates for all printed, digitally stored and electronic data.
The panel will provide guidance on:
- Enforcement, penalties and other risks associated with non-compliance;
- Available technology solutions to achieve compliance including encryption, data loss prevention tools and secure portals; and
- How to choose the right technology path to address a firm’s individual needs.
Lauded as one of the most comprehensive data protection and privacy laws in the United States, MA 201 CMR 17 will act as a reference point for other states as their laws are created. Hedge funds should take the steps now to protect all their data utilizing the strict Massachusetts guidelines to ensure compliance as future law are implemented and to avoid any scandals and data breaches.
