Data Breach Disclosure Requirements Implicate More Than Privacy Law
Various state laws require data breach notification and different state laws have different triggers for when notification is required and who must be notified. In California, for example, a breached company must give notice to each affected California resident, but the California AG need be notified only if the breach affected 500 or more individuals in California. In New York, on the other hand, AG notification is required if any NY residents were affected by the breach.
While all such laws generally address notification of affected parties, the AG, credit reporting agencies, other holders of the data, and certain other constituents, they are not the only word in disclosure requirements. Read the full blog post here.
