Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (SHIELD ACT) was developed in July of 2019. This Act amends New York's existing data breach notification law by expanding the definition of "Private Information" and by adding "Data Breach Security Protections." It has additional cybersecurity safeguards and new reporting requirements in the event of a breach.
