“On July 25 of this year, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the “Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security” Act, commonly known as the SHIELD Act.

General Business Law § 899-aa, New York state’s breach law, has been on the books since 2005. The SHIELD Act’s amendments to Section 899-aa have given New York businesses more to which they should pay attention.”
