Message from the President
When I was a V.P. of Government Relations at TRW, Inc., and then Experian, I recall internal discussions about the growing expense we were incurring due to a patchwork of state data privacy laws and regulations, and how it might be time to ask Congress to step in, preempt the states and create a national standard. Last week, 51 CEO’s from some of the largest companies in the country asked Congress to do just that.

Mitigating Your Business Risk
Ransomware has been one of the top cyber threats in the past several years. In December 2018, Delaware Guidance Services, a Wilmington-based mental health provider, was hit by a ransomware attack that impacted sensitive medical and financial information of about 20,000 children. Ransomware has also hit major cities, including Baltimore and Atlanta. The attack on Baltimore, which began on May 7, 2019, crippled city services and is expected to cost the city over $18 million. As of July, all services have not yet been restored and the effects will linger for months.
