Businesses in the United States are working to become compliant with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) or have already become compliant with it. Considering the number of cyberattacks in the United States last year, the need for personal data security has become more vital than ever. Atlanta, Baltimore, Reviera, and now Miami have all fallen victim to cyberattacks, resulting in user data being encrypted or stolen.

The Calfornia Attorney General drafted the CCPA with California consumers' privacy in mind, and now another US state is working on implementing a similar law. New York will be launching its own data protection law called the Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data (SHIELD) Act, which will go into effect on March 21, 2020.

New York is modifying its existing data protection law to adapt to the advances in technological development and data capturing mechanisms. This law will redefine the meaning of private information, data breaches, the geographical scope, and more.

In this e-book, we'll go over the SHIELD Act in detail, discuss how businesses should respond to cyberattacks, how the SHIELD Act compares with CCPA, the penalties of failing to comply, and six steps organizations can take to become compliant with the SHIELD Act.

Key takeaways from this guide:

  • The what, why, and how of the SHIELD Act.
  • The difference between the SHIELD Act and the CCPA.
  • Data management and IT operations post-Brexit.
  • Six steps to become compliant with the SHIELD Act.
  • How ManageEngine can help organizations comply with the SHIELD Act.
