Data Breach Notification: California Targets 'Loopholes'

February 25, 2019 Mayuri Kumar

A proposed California law would expand the state's pioneering data breach notification requirements to include breaches of biometric data and passport numbers.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Thursday announced the proposed law, AB 1130, saying it would close a loophole in the state's current breach notification law.

The state's current data breach law doesn't require organizations to notify individuals if their passport number has been exposed.
