Nevada Requires Encryption of Personal Information in Transit and in Storage on Portable Devices

In 2005, Nevada enacted a data security law that required businesses to encrypt customer personal information before electronically transmitting it outside of an internal secured network.[1]

Nevada recently amended this law to also cover personal information not related to customers, and to require data collectors that conduct business in the state to encrypt data storage devices containing personal information that they move outside the secured physical and logical boundaries of the entity.[2] Data storage devices include, among other things, computers, cellular phones, and thumb drives. The amended Nevada encryption law goes into effect January 1, 2010.
