State Amends Data Security Breach Notification Law
October 19, 2015

In order to make data security breach notices easier for consumers to understand, the State of California amended the notification statute, codified at Civil Code Section 1798.82 , by creating a model form where the key pieces of required information are organized to answer basic questions about the breach. Use of the prescribed format entitles the affected entity to a presumption of compliance with the statute. The bill becomes effective January 1, 2016. See CBA’s Regulatory Compliance Bulletin for more information.
