Two new laws in New York and California are expected to transform the way businesses and electronic scrap recyclers handle data security and personal information.
In July, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law Senate Bill S5575B, also known as the Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act. A year earlier, California’s then-Gov. Jerry Brown signed the California Consumer Privacy Act, Assembly Bill 375, into law.
Both laws, according to an E-Scrap News report, require businesses to implement additional security on their recycling vendors.
