Massachusetts Regulation 201 CMR 17 - SSL

Postby apsmith » Thu Feb 18, 2010 9:45 am

To our valued customers,

Massachusetts has enacted a law titled "The Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth" (201 CMR 17) that goes into effect March 1st, 2010. Bullhorn has taken steps to ensure compliance with the law as well as continuing to work in providing a secure platform for its users and clients.

We would like to remind our customers that all our application API services are offered over SSL and clients should be utilizing these URLs for all communications and webservices to Bullhorn. These SSL URLs are currently available and in production. Over the next several months, Bullhorn will be setting an end-of-life date for all non-SSL application API URLs to its site and services. We ask that each client begin using the secure APIs at their nearest convenience per the Massachusetts regulation.

If you have any questions, please contact the Bullhorn Support Team.

We are using the webservices in our .NET web application. Our website is HTTP, but webservices URL is HTTPS:
<add key="BullHornAPINew.ApiService" value="https://api.bullhornstaffing.com/webservices-1.1/"/>

I assume that this takes care of us being complaint with Massachusetts Regulation.

Please confirm.

Thank you.

Angel,

As long as all calls to our webservice API are via SSL, that would handle our compliance with this regulation.
