A new Nevada law, S.B. 227, will require entities doing business in that state to beef up their protections of personal information. Nevada currently requires encryption of any personal information transmitted electronically (other than by facsimile). But S.B. 227, which becomes effective on January 1, 2010, will require encryption of all personal information leaving the “logical or physical controls of the data collector,” including electronic data on a “data storage device.” The definition of “data storage device” includes computers, cellular phones, magnetic tape, electronic computer drives and optical computer drives.
