Sometimes It's about what you don't know and that's why in most cases companies were never aware of what hit them.  A comprehensive IT risk assessment can prevent breaches, reduce the impact of realized breaches, and keep your company's name from appearing in a negative spotlight.

Many states have enacted data breach notification laws and cybersecurity compliance rules such as the New York DFS 23 NYCRR 500 Cybersecurity Rule which requires all financial institutions to not only conduct annual IT Risk Assessments but regulations will require each company to assess its specific risk profile and design a cybersecurity program that addresses its risks in a robust fashion and no longer will senior management be able to "play dumb" the laws will mandate that they must take this issue seriously and be responsible for the organization’s cybersecurity program and file an annual certification confirming compliance with these regulations.

According to the NJ Identity Theft Prevention Act:

Any business or public entity required under this section to disclose a breach of security of a customer's personal information shall, in advance of the disclosure to the customer, report the breach of security and any information pertaining to the breach to the Division of State Police in the Department of Law and Public Safety for investigation or handling, which may include dissemination or referral to other appropriate law enforcement entities.

The California Breach Notification Law:

Expanded effective January 1, 2014, defines the qualifying conditions that constitute a breach of an individual’s personal information, as well as the actions that must be taken if such a security breach occurs.  The law applies to any business that operates in the state of California. It doesn't require a nexus (physical presence) in the state; if you have customers in California, the law applies to your business. Therefore, if you have a national customer base, it’s likely that you’re subject to the amended law.
