Michigan Inacts New Identity Theft and Breach Notice Law

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

Yesterday (January 3) Michigan’s governor, Jennifer M. Granholm, signed a new identity theft and breach notification law, SB 309.

“Today’s technology has taken commerce and communication to new heights, but it also puts citizens at additional risk of identity theft as ever-increasing amounts of personal information are stored and transmitted electronically,” Granholm said. “While I am pleased to sign legislation that provides critical information to consumers, we must do more to provide our citizens with the tools they need to truly protect themselves.”
