MA Data Security Regulations – Final Regs. Filed


In case you missed it in the November 6th edition of the Massachusetts Agent, MAIA’s Monthly member newsletter…

The Office of Consumer Affairs & Business Regulations (OCABR) filed the final version of 201 CMR 17.00 Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents with the Secretary of State on October 30th. The much anticipated regulations will take effect March 1, 2010.  

The final revision remained largely unchanged since the OCABR hearing, which took place on September 22nd. However, a clarification was made regarding third-party service provider contracts (see 17.03 (2)(f)(2)) and the grace period was extended until March 31, 2012.

Hopefully, you have gotten a chance to attend one of the panels or webniars that MAIA has hosted in the last few months which focused on helping agents prepare for this upcoming change. We too, have to look at how this affects our day to day operations and are in the process of starting compliance. Making the effort to comply with these regulations is a must. MAIA invites you to look at the resources available in the Info Online Center at

Specific questions regarding the Data Security Regulations can be directed to Dan Foley at the MAIA offices by phone at 800.972.9312 or 508.634.2900, or by email at
