In 2010 there will be two important compliance laws introduced which will affect the majority of North American organizations and many global organization too.

45 US States followed California when they introduced “SB1386“, the Security Breach Information Act, which has specific and restrictive privacy breach reporting requirements.


  • From the 1st January 2010, ALL businesses that collect or transmit payment card information, will be legally obliged, by Navada Law, to comply with PCI DSS.

  • Every organization who collect, owns or licenses personal information about a resident of the Commonwealth shall be in full compliance with 201 CMR 17.00 (The Massachusetts Data Protection Law) on or before March 1, 2010.



  • Similarly to the SB1386 Law, California, Massachusetts & Texas are already looking at making PCI DSS Law and history tells us that when California moves, everyone else follows!
    To help you comply with these impending laws ITG have developed a range of solutions which are aim to make the process as cost effective and simple as possible:

    The Nevada PCI DSS Law:

    The PCI DSS requires you to:

  • apply a number of specific controls, or safeguards.

  • These include documented policies and procedures; as well as

  • a number of technical IT and network configurations.

  • You will also have to provide staff with appropriate training; and

  • You will have to have quarterly scans.



  • PCI DSS v1.2 Documentation Compliance Toolkit
    toolkit-book-pci-dss

    This PCI DSS v1.2 compliance toolkit is specifically designed to help payment card-accepting organizations quickly create all the documentation required to affirmatively answer the requirements of the PCI DSS as set out in the Self Assessment Questionnaire (v1.2).


    201 CMR 17.00 – The Massachusetts Data Protection Law:

    201 CMR 17.00 & ISO 27001 Toolkit

    will save you months of work, help you avoid costly trial-and-error dead-ends, and ensure everything is covered to current 201 CMR 17.00 / ISO 27001 standard.

    This version of the ISMS Documentation Toolkit is ideal for those who owns or licenses personal information about a resident of the Commonwealth.
