U.S. data breach notification law; state by state.


U.S. data breach notification law; state by state.

Ed. by John P. Hutchins.

American Bar Association


138 pages




The thirty states in the US that had legislation on data breach notification at the time this book was written mostly model their laws on the 2005 California Security Breach Information Act, but the details vary from state to state. Hutchins surveys the laws alphabetically by state in terms of the presence or absence and nature of the following elements: the entities covered, type of information covered, what constitutes a breach, who must be notified, how quickly notice must be provided, form or method of notification, how notification requirements differ for those who simply "maintain" personal information, safe harbor for companies that already have notification procedures, notification to additional parties, and enforcement and potential penalties. The appendix comprises a comparative summary of the same information.
