Deploying software systems to  manage a growing organization

Most organizations use software to manage at least these items:

  • Accounting – Perform vital bookkeeping and accounting functions
  • Contacts – Organize and manage clients, prospects, vendors, etc.
  • Operations – Match assets to organization’s need on a daily basis

Bryley Systems’ presentation on Massachusetts 201 CRM 17.00 data-privacy statute

On March 1st, 2010, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts mandated that all organizations secure and continuously protect the personal information of Massachusetts residents, both physically and electronically.  (The statute is Mass. 201 CMR 17.00.)

In 2009, Bryley Systems complied with all requirements of 201 CMR 17.00 and continues to meet and exceed these requirements.  (We estimate that our initial effort in 2009 to comply with this statute consumed over 250 hours and required significant out-of-pocket expenditures in additional security equipment and software.)
