The SHIELD Act is now law in New York state.

Are you covered?
Effective October 23, 2019, The Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (SHIELD) requires organizations that maintain private information concerning New York state residents comply with expanded reporting requirements for notifying impacted parties in the event of a breach.

By March 2020, these same organizations need to have in place full scale compliance and data protection programs. In both instances, these requirements apply regardless of where the organization is located.
