Illinois Security Breach Law

The Illinois Security Breach law has passed both the Assembly and Senate, and the Governor is expected to sign the legislation.

The proposed law would require any data collector that owns or licenses personal information concerning an Illinois resident to notify the resident that there has been a breach of the security of the system data following discovery or notification of the breach.

The disclosure notification would have to made in "the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay." consistent with any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach.

The law would also apply to any data collector that maintains computerized data that includes personal information that the data collector does not own or license the data.

Violation of the law would constitute an unlawful practice under the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
