The Massachusetts Data Breach Law – Are you in compliance?

The Massachusetts Data Breach Law that took effect on March 1, 2010 requires you to adequately secure your data. This means hardening your systems, preventing intrusions, and documenting policies.

But besides the fact that you are now required by law to do so, there are many other reasons to have a comprehensive security plan in place. For example, according to the Ponemon Institute, the average data breach costs $6.75 million.

Black Box can help you implement your comprehensive security plan with effective security solutions that aren’t going to break the bank.

The Veri-NAC™ appliance for network access control helps you comply with this new law by enabling you to find and fix network holes, and prevent unauthorized access to confidential citizen records. It also comes with templates for producing security policies for documenting due care and due diligence. Veri-NAC is a plug-and-play, agentless, and non-inline appliance, designed to provide rock-solid security. Best of all, it requires no infrastructure upgrade like some other NAC solutions do.
