CORRECTION: Massachusetts Data Protection Law Takes Effect May 1, 2009

A big thank you to Brandon Dunlap and Brett Myers for catching an error I made in my January 1 post

The compliance date for Massachusetts 201 CMR 17.00 has been pushed back to May 1, 2009.
The deadline for requiring written certification from third-party providers verifying compliance with this law was also pushed back to January 1, 2010.
The Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation (OCABR) is holding a public hearing on January 16 to receive oral and written testimony on the state’s decision to extend the compliance date.
The notice of public hearing, which includes information on the time and location of the hearing and where to send written or e-mailed comments, is available here.
