Proactively setting new compliance standards
Massachusetts is the first US state to enact their own standards for the security of personal information on business and organizational computers. “MA 201CMR17.00, Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth” applies to any business that electronically stores personal information (PI) about a Massachusetts citizen, regardless of that business’s location.
