Presentation: The New Mexico Breach Notification Act and the Multi-State Problem

Effective July 2017, New Mexico became the 48th state to enact a breach notification law. Despite this, many organizations are not only unaware of their obligations under New Mexico law, but – along with 47 other states and multiple territories – breach notification requirements have become a dizzying patchwork of laws and regulations, and your business is probably required to comply with all of them (even if you didn’t know it). Even worse, strict EU privacy laws just went into effect this year, and they are applicable to any organization worldwide that handle EU citizens’ information. In this session, we try to provide some sense to the chaos, an understanding of what privacy handling and breach notification legal requirements typically expect, and provide some sound advice on how to handle the situation when resources are limited.

Your presenter is Daniel Ziesmer, the President of Centripetum LLC, a firm specializing in supporting the governance, risk management, and compliance efforts of small enterprises, developing cybersecurity architectures and remediation programs, and providing virtual CISO services. Daniel is also the Vice President of the New Mexico Chapter of ISSA. A former professor, security architect, compliance director, and information security officer, Daniel has extensive experience in establishing security programs for governments and various private industries, including industrial control system environments. He holds a broad array of professional industry certifications, is a member of and contributor to numerous IT, cybersecurity, ICS, engineering, and scientific industry organizations, and has served as a technical editor or contributing author for more than a dozen IT industry books and textbooks.
