The Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act is a little-known, often misunderstood, but vitally important federal law passed in 2002 and intended to protect certain entities from the enterprise-threatening liability they would likely face following a terrorist event.
This liability could stem from an attack involving your own people or facilities, or one involving a third party where certain products, technolo¬gies, advice, or services are being used. The SAFETY Act’s liability protections apply to physi¬cal attacks on persons or property, or to acts of cyber-terrorism that can result in physical injury and/or cause financial harm.
If your company or institution utilizes SAFETY Act-approved products, technologies, or services, it automatically affords unprecedented liability protection to your company, customers, suppliers and/or contractors under the act.
NextGen Security’s SAFETY Act designation means that when you use our approved services, you’re automatically granted federal immunity from lawsuits stemming from an act of terrorism where our approved products or services were in use, and are alleged to have failed in preventing or mitigating the event.
