California Privacy Breach Law Changes Go Into Effect January 1, 2008: Redefines & Broadens “Personal Information” Definition

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

California’s privacy breach notification law SB1386 started the ball rolling with regard to what is now at least 40 U.S. states, including the District of Columbia, that have breach notice laws. Most of the subsequent state laws largely based theirs upon SB1386, including how the law defines “personal information.”
Effective January 1, 2008, the definition of “personal information” changes when AB1298 goes into effect in California.
