As it stands right now, at least 36 states and Puerto Rico have introduced or considered a total of more than 160 bills or resolutions related to cybersecurity thus far in 2019. Key areas of legislative activity include IoT security, cyber insurance standards, cybersecurity task force creation, and an overall improvement of security practices.
Considering the cybersecurity hazards out there, this is great news. This new legislation should help to better protect American individuals and businesses from cybercrime… but it also means your company’s IT legal compliance burden is about to get a lot heavier.
SWK Network Services is here to help you ease that burden with a complimentary white paper that explains how you can streamline the processes of IT legal compliance at your company. Download the white paper here.
What’s in the White Paper?

He does this by providing a “big picture” understanding of the often overwhelmingly detailed ins and outs of modern legislation, breaking down compliance requirements into three common threads. He then provides creative, crystal-clear examples for how businesses can use cost-effective cybersecurity training to meet many of their IT legal compliance requirements.
In addition, the white paper covers:
- Examples of various cybersecurity laws
- The most common methods of cybersecurity training for personnel
- Advice for combating the lurking IT security threat inside your organization
- 4 key aspects to include in any cybersecurity awareness training program
