Security Breach Law Enacted in Arkansas

It hasn't taken long for states to enact laws like California's Security Breach notification law, which got so much free publicity after Choicepoint unwisely chose to notify California residents first about the massive use of their data by ID theives.

Numerous states have such laws pending -- see the recent newsletter of Privacy and American Business, and today's Washington Post.

On March 31, the Arkansas Governor signed Arkansas Senate Bill 1167 which will require, like California's law, that consumers be notified of unauthorized disclosures of their personal information. The new law will also require regular reasonable information security measures.

** Update -- May 4, 2005 **

Those interested in the above story might want to know that Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire has signed Senate Bill 6043, also a security breach notification law.
