States Update Data Breach Notification Laws with Stricter Definitions and Requirements

A growing number of states are implementing or amending data breach notification laws, the latest being Colorado, Louisiana and Vermont, The National Law Review reports.

In Colorado, for example, companies are required to notify affected individuals and the state attorney general of a breach within 30 days. In Louisiana, the legislature expanded the scope of personally identifiable information covered by the law, according to the article.

Companies operating in the accounts receivable management industry should stay informed about these laws in the event that a data breach occurs internally or at a client’s office.

Read more about the recent state updates in The National Law Journal and our Collector magazine archives for how to improve your company’s data security and conduct a risk analysis … especially if you work in health care collections.
