More Must Be Done in Massachusetts to 
Curb Distracted Driving

By Alison Cooper

Lawmakers in 15 states as well as the District of Columbia have passed smarter distracted driving laws. Massachusetts and Maine are the only states in New England that haven’t passed hands-free legislation. The positive results we’ve seen in these jurisdictions, as well as the endorsement of Governor Baker, should serve as the impetus for action in the Commonwealth.

Cybercrime Affects Small Businesses, Too. How Can They Prepare?

By Angela Gleason

Alabama recently became the final state in the country to adopt data breach notification legislation, which requires companies that use or acquire sensitive personally identifiable information to notify consumers when their information is unlawfully acquired. It also requires businesses to implement and maintain reasonable security measures.

Finding a Better Course to Navigate Disasters

By Tom Santos

Last year alone, Congress spent $132 billion to cover disaster aid requests. While we should of course assist people and communities in need, this approach is not cost-effective, it certainly is not sustainable, and it is often not reliable. Something has got to give, and the 2018 hurricane season is as good a time as ever for us to rethink how the nation deals with natural disasters.
