At least five states have introduced legislation this year, or prefiled bills for next year, that appear to have been spurred by the recent data breach at Equifax, according to Lexis Nexis State Net’s legislative tracking system. Most of the measures, proposed after the breach was made public on Sept. 7, provide for free credit freezes, credit reports or credit monitoring. Legislation dealing with credit freezes and consumer notification of data breaches that was introduced earlier in the year is also pending in nine states.
