Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Database breach notification. Requires an individual or entity that owns or licenses computerized data that includes personal information to disclose any breach of the security of the system following discovery or notification of the breach to the Office of the Attorney General and any affected resident of the Commonwealth whose unencrypted and unredacted personal information was, or is reasonably believed to have been accessed and acquired by an unauthorized person. A breach is defined as the unauthorized access and acquisition of unencrypted and unredacted computerized data that compromises the security or confidentiality of personal information maintained by an individual or entity as part of a database of personal information regarding multiple individuals and that causes, or the individual or entity reasonably believes has caused, or will cause, identity theft or other fraud to any resident of the Commonwealth. Violations by a state-charted or licensed financial institution shall be enforceable exclusively by the financial institution's primary state regulator. Violations by an entity regulated by the State Corporation Commission shall be enforceable exclusively by the Commission. All other violations shall be enforced by the Office of the Attorney General, which may impose a civil penalty not to exceed $150,000 per breach or series of breaches of a similar nature that are discovered in a single investigation. The bill specifies that its provisions do not limit an individual from recovering direct economic damages. This bill is identical to HB 1469.
