The New Ohio Data Protection Act & What it Means for Your Company’s Safety

ohio-data-protection-act

For businesses who implement security measures, Ohio becomes the first state in the nation to implement a law that affords a data breach safe harbor - the Ohio Data Protection Act.

Not a week goes by without hearing about a new data breach. It’s becoming common knowledge that companies, both small and large, are facing the tough reality that it is no longer a matter of if, but really when a company will be affected by a data breach.

Over the years, lawmakers have struggled with constructing effective methods to strengthen the cybersecurity of organizations without mandating one-size-fits-all requirements, which makes it challenging. At the beginning of November, Senate Bill 220, also known as the Ohio Data Protection Act, was enacted into law in the state of Ohio—which represents the first law that accomplishes that goal.

Empower Your Firstline Workers with Microsoft’s F1 M365 Offering

Empower Your Firstline Workers with Microsoft’s F1 M365 Offering

Today’s businesses are ever more dependent on their Firstline workers. A Firstline worker is someone whose main job is focused on creating or delivering a company’s product. This could be workers who interface directly with a customer or those employees building your product on the manufacturing floor. These Firstline workers frequently have been under resourced with technology. Many companies find it difficult to justify paying the same price for software subscriptions for a Firstline worker versus a traditional knowledge worker, when Firstline workers spend very little time in front of a computer. Microsoft recognized this challenge and began offering Kiosk plans. Those plans first evolved into the F1 plans and now Microsoft includes the F1 plan into their brand-new Microsoft 365 (M365) F1 bundle. The M365 F1 offering includes three major pillars – Office 365 functionality; a scaled down version of the Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite; and Windows 10. Microsoft has priced this product aggressively, which is less than a third of the cost of the regular Microsoft 365 E3 or E5 plans, while offering all the features and security your Firstline worker needs to be successful.
