To assist organizations with state compliance requirements, such as the privacy regulations in Massachusetts, Nevada, California, Texas and many other states, the state regulation lexicons can be used to detect emails with sensitive content as defined by those laws.
These regulations typically define sensitive content as personal information which identifies a resident in combination with any one or more of the following data elements that relate to such resident: social security number, driver's license number or state-issued identification card number, financial account number, or credit or debit card number, or anything that would permit access to a resident’s financial account/information.
The state regulation lexicons scan for a variety of terms, including:
Social security numbers
State specific driver license and identification card formats
Generic driver license formats
Debit/credit card numbers
