These regulations apply to all companies conducting business in Massachusetts, large and small, who compile or maintain records that include personal information. Companies will need to establish and maintain a security program for the protection of personal information. The regulations call on businesses to encrypt data sent over the Internet or saved on laptops or flash drives; encrypt wirelessly transmitted data; and to utilize up-to date firewall protection that creates an electronic gatekeeper between the data and the outside world and only permits authorized users to access or transmit data, according to preset rules.
