A new interactive map has been published by IT Governance, one of the United States’s leading providers of information security services, that details data breach notification laws across the nation.

“America is made up of an intricate patchwork of data breach notification legislation. This interactive map we’ve developed is designed to let businesses easily see what legislation they need to comply with, depending on which state they operate in,” said Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance.

By clicking on a state within the interactive map, users will automatically be led to relevant data breach notification legislation applicable to that state, along with suitable compliance suggestions.

Despite support from President Obama’s administration and from the US Attorney General, no single federal law has yet been enacted that requires organizations to notify individuals when their personal information has been compromised by a security breach. Organizations that conduct business across all 50 states clearly face a considerable challenge in achieving compliance.

In order to support multiple legislative and regulatory requirements, IT Governance is advising US organizations to implement a robust information security management system (ISMS) aligned to ISO27001, the international information security standard.

IT Governance’s ISO27001 packaged solutions provide US organizations with a fixed-price combination of products and services that will enable them to implement ISO27001 and enhance their cyber security. Find out more:

This interactive map is the second graphical representation regarding information security to be published by IT Governance in 2014. Last month, IT Governance created an infographic that detailed US businesses’ fight against cyber crime.
