NASBP is pleased to announce that a six-part series on data privacy and cybersecurity, by Myriah Jaworski and her colleagues at Octillo, will appear in the next six issues of the NASBP magazine, Surety Bond Quarterly.

Today’s cybersecurity and data privacy landscape is constantly evolving. As threat actors become more sophisticated and legislators continue to introduce regulations governing privacy, organizations, including bonding agencies, sureties, and construction companies, among others, must shift their priorities to prepare for and address sweeping changes in the space. What are the risks and how can Myriah_Jaworksi_narrow_photo.pngbusinesses prevent and prepare for cyber incidents and compliance with new and emerging privacy regulations?
