Lab #6 – Identifying the Scope of Your State’s (location’s) Data
and Security Breach Notification Law
Currently, 47 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the
Virgin Islands have data and security breach notification laws that define what
organizations must do if they have had data or security breached that impact

Web site tracks and organizes telecommunication and information technology
state legislation. Review the NCSL Web site and data and security breach
notification laws for each state listed at
You are a cybersecurity manager at ABC organization. Your Chief Information
Security Officer (CISO) comes to your office and asks if you are familiar with
this site and how it might affect the way ABC does business in the different
states where ABC is licensed to do business. He has asked you to create a
presentation for a meeting to introduce the executives of the organization to
this site and report on the organizations responsibilities for breach notification
for the region where you are the cybersecurity manager. Locate your state in
the list on the NCSL website above. If you live outside of the United States
locate a similar law for where you are a resident.
Create a PowerPoint® narration (voice) report of at least 10 slides based on
your findings in the NCSL website for your state (not including the cover page
and reference page). If you do not own a copy of Microsoft PowerPoint use a
comparable slide software or Google Slides (free and accessible from
Google.com). If your tool does not offer the ability to put audio on the slides
utilize another tool to record the audio portion, i.e., VLC Media or another tool
that will allow you to record .mp3 file format that transitions with the slides.
