CYBERSECURITY

&DATA PROTECTION

Safeguard Your Data and Reputation

Data breaches have become a more common phenomenon than we care to admit. It is no longer something small businesses can sweep under the rug, change the subject, and hope no one else notices.

Texas requires a person who conducts business in the state and who owns or licenses computerized data that includes sensitive personal information (“SPI”) to notify any individual whose SPI was, or is reasonably believed to have been acquired by an unauthorized person.

 

Failure to comply with this notice statute can cost a business penalties of up to $100 per person per day, to a maximum of $250,000 per data breach.

This is just one of several areas in the rapidly-evolving arena of cybersecurity and data privacy law which Armstrong the Law Firm, P.C. advises its clients.
