State Laws Require Data Encryption
You are expected to maintain the security and confidentiality of Minnesota Life customer private information at all times, including when information is transmitted electronically, or stored on a removable media storage device such as a USB stick or portable external hard drive. We consider it a best practice to encrypt private customer information when it is transmitted electronically or when it is stored on a removable media storage device. In addition, Nevada statute NRS 603A and Massachusetts regulation 201 CMR 17.00 mandate the use of encryption when the private information* of any person residing in one of those states is transmitted electronically or stored on removable media.
When transmitting customer private information, please use one of the following methods:
- Encrypted Email
- Regular Mail
- Express Mail
If you store customer private information on a removable media storage device, the data must be encrypted to ensure the security of the information.
We will always use encryption when transmitting private customer information to you electronically.
Thank you for safeguarding our customers' privacy.
