New eBook: 50 State Guide to Data Breach Notification Laws
Every business, no matter its size, shape, customer base, or industry, has had to adapt to a new world because of the novel coronavirus. The same is true for cybercriminals.
They haven't just adapted, they're thriving. Just like toilet paper and hand sanitizer manufacturers and remote meeting companies saw a boom in business, so too have the criminals. The FBI has reported a four-fold increase in the reports of cybercrime since the pandemic began.
While business owners and leaders should always take precautions and invest in security, prevention sometimes isn’t enough. Cybercriminals have all the time in the world to find their way around or through the latest security protocols.
When cybercriminals succeed, they often compromise client data — their personal identifying information. When that happens, you have responsibilities.
At McGowan, we know the digital privacy and information security world changes quickly and varies from state to state. We’ve put together a guide to help you and your clients understand your responsibilities in each and every state.

While we never want to have to notify our customers that their information may have been compromised, it would be worse to have an event happen and do nothing at all.
