The risk of data breach has increased tremendously. While Congress has enacted breach notification requirements in a number of Acts, data breach concerns are not limited to federal law. Breaches of state information systems have led state legislatures to enact an array of data breach notification laws. This publication is a guide to existing state laws and includes full statutes for a number of states to illustrate larger state approaches taken in some jurisdictions.
Author Jonathan M. Joseph, a partner with Christian & Barton, LLP, has extensive experience advising clients in multi-state data breach matters.
Since the initial publication of Data Breach Notification Laws: A Fifty State Survey, some states have modified their laws and others have added laws to their codes. Organizations that operate across state lines must know how to address a security breach in short order. The 2013 Supplement brings the information in this publication up to date with changes enacted in numerous states, and also includes additional sample notice letters and forms.
