Ohio Data Protection Act - Safe Harbor for Businesses in Ohio
On November 2, 2018 Ohio’s new Data Protection Act went into effect.  The Ohio DPA creates a new statutory affirmative defense against data breach tort claims and identifies specific cybersecurity frameworks that are now presumptively reasonable.  KMK Law  and Gratia, Inc. partnered together to discuss the impact of Ohio DPA on businesses, the steps companies need to take as a result, and what this “safe harbor” really means.
Participants learned about:
  • What is new in the Ohio Data Protection Act and how it compares to other statutes
  • What cybersecurity programs a business must have in place to be eligible for this new defense
  • The various frameworks identified in the Ohio DPA (including NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53 and ISO 27001)
