State Data Breach Notification Laws:
Jeff [2:47 PM]
Well, in late March South Dakota made it 49
, and effective June 1, Alabama will be the 50th
state with a data breach notification law. There's still talk about a national law, but personally, I think this is something we should let the states handle on their own.
Remember, if you have an incident that might be a HIPAA breach, you also need to consult state law; an incident could be either a HIPAA breach or a state breach, or both, or neither. The analysis is similar, but not the same.
UPDATE: Shoulda given a hat tip to Ron Holtsford in Alabama for the heads up; I missed them both in the flurry that was the end of March.
