U.S. Companies are Unprepared for a Rapidly Changing Regulatory Environment
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 31, 2019--In 2018, at least 35 states considered a total of more than 265 bills and resolutions relating to cybersecurity. 50 of these efforts became law and many companies are unprepared for this rapidly changing regulatory environment, according to a new report— The 2019 Compliance Landscape Report —from Edgile, the leading cyber risk and regulatory compliance partner to the Fortune 500.
