Attorney General Maura Healey of Massachusetts has held her office since January 2015. Massachusetts has established itself as being on the cutting edge of data privacy regulations that call for robust written information security program and computer system requirements, and the attorney general’s office continues to be on the forefront of enforcement since its security breach notification law was passed in 2007. Healey was no stranger to the work of the office, having also served as chief of the Public Protection & Advocacy Bureau and chief of the Business and Labor Bureau, in addition to working as a special assistant district attorney and in private practice. Healey talks to The Privacy Advisor about her work in targeting healthcare-related privacy violations as well as the future of enforcement in our data-driven economy.
