Abstract: The field of information security and privacy is continually growing and evolving to meet the needs of both individuals and organizations. While individuals may still struggle securing their own data, organizations must follow specific regulations concerning any data they hold that is considered private (e.g., social security number, driver’s license number, etc.). However, the challenge for most organizations is understanding those regulation as they exist at both the federal and state level. Complicating matters further is the fact that laws may differ from state to state. The current research examines the security and privacy landscape that organizations must navigate. The goal is to get a better understanding of federal and state security/privacy laws while discussing future directions that should be taken at both levels to ensure the privacy and security of an individual’s data.
