New Massachusetts Law on Personal Data Protection

Massachusetts just passed a new law that governs the protection of personal information by those who store and use that information.  This affects anyone that collects information about your clients and stores it either in hard copy or any electronic manner.  There are stiff penalties for any breach that results in the data you are responsible for protecting being used in an illegal manner so it behooves you to be aware of the steps you should take to protect this information.

Here are links to the associated documents.
