Privacy and Compliance laws related to Cybersecurity

We can help your organization be in compliant with cybersecurity regulations and legislation
Do you know which regulations relate to you?

Organizations need to be concerned with complying with information security from top to bottom. Regulations are in place that can help an organization improve information security while non-compliance can result in severe fines. It may be difficult for an organization to understand which laws apply and which ones do not because many different sets of laws can apply to one organization and not another. Within the United States, 47 states have laws requiring that organizations provide notice to individuals affected by a security breach. A handful of states further require that organizations implement reasonable security measures to protect certain types of data.
