Electronic book: epub
The risk of a data breach has increased tremendously in recent years. While the U.S. Congress has enacted breach notification requirements in a number of Acts, data breach concerns are not limited to federal law. This due to actual breaches of state information systems, and has led state legislatures to enact an array of data breach notification laws.
This new publication is a guide to existing state laws, and includes the full statutes for a number of states to illustrate not only the approach that larger states have taken, but also to highlight some of the more unusual approaches that some states have followed.
• A fifty state survey of data breach notification statutes
• The full text for the relevant act in CA, NY, IL, TX, FL, MA, MD, MI, NH, NJ, NC, WV, and WI
• Sample data breach notification to consumers, reporting forms, sample letter to a state Attorney
• General, and breach notification requirements for Commonwealth of Virginia
