The number of regulations and rules since the early 2000’s is truly mind blowing as the government and private businesses attempt to keep up with cyber hackers, cyber terrorists and other nefarious online organizations.   
These regulations, though confusing and cumbersome, are the first defense to keeping data and information secure as well as protecting the intellectual property of organizations.
