How to find state laws governing data breach disclosure rules?

TravisT

Is there a source that lists the various laws regarding notification of data breaches in each state? It would be preferable if it was a plain language site, since not all of us went to law school.

Here is a list of the various laws, but since they are statutes, it will probably require some skill is statutory construction to fully understand. Still, it should give you an idea of each states requirements, and if you have any concerns about exposure to liability, you should contact an attorney with experience in this area.
