This white paper examines how states like Massachusetts have implemented one of the most stringent and far-reaching requirements for protecting consumer data and how organizations of all sizes can meet the privacy requirements with simple, scalable encryption technologies.

As the security threat landscape evolves, state regulators are taking action to hold businesses accountable for protecting the privacy of consumer personal information. Massachusetts has implemented the most stringent consumer privacy regulations to date, requiring businesses to encrypt the personal information of any Massachusetts resident when the information is sent over the Internet or stored on mobile devices such as laptops, or corporate servers and storage devices.
