MA Encryption

Free 1 Hour Consultation. Determine if your business is ready for the new legislation

At Paul Murphy Insurance we pride ourselves in our ability to protect our local community and clients in all aspects of their personal and professional lives.

If your business maintains or collects people’s personal information, you are required to protect that information from theft or misuse—making your MA Encryption compliance all the more critical. Businesses across the country – virtually in all industries – are facing increased regulatory and liability risks related to the loss of private information concerning their employees and their customers.

Both Massachusetts and Federal regulations require you to properly protect any personal information in your possession. Under Massachusetts’s rules, businesses that own license, store or maintain personal information of a Massachusetts resident must develop and implement a written information security program and implement certain system security measures including encryption of personal information during transmission and encryption of personal information stored on laptops and other portable devices.

Penalties for non-compliance, regarding the MA Encryption regulations, can cost thousands of dollars in fines per occurrence.
