Data Privacy and Cyberlaw Incoming
Data is everywhere. In the 1980s, as computers came into the corporate picture, some frameworks and laws were established. But, as data generated from the internet has erupted, there is a significant disparity between what these laws cover and what people can actually do. This disparity has resulted in rampant unethical hacks, ransomware, and data breaches. In response, many countries across the world have rushed to create legal frameworks for internet data to operate within. This is known as cyber law. And it's erupting.
Cyberlaw and You
Currently there are some national frameworks regarding cybersecurity and, in the last few years, there are many state laws addressing data privacy. As such, business owners need to understand what legislation their state legislatures have passed regarding cybersecurity. Many states have passed laws requiring businesses to comply with certain frameworks and allowing businesses to protect themselves against lawsuits. In many cases, business owners are unaware of these requirements and benefits, leaving them vulnerable.
