South Dakota Senate Committee Advances Data Breach Notification Bill

January 2018

According to the Associated Press, South Dakota's Senate Judiciary Committee has unanimously passed a bill that mandates companies to notify residents if their personal information is compromised in a data breach. The proposed legislation would require companies to inform affected residents within 60 days of the breach, unless otherwise directed by the attorney general. Additionally, if a breach impacts more than 250 individuals, companies would be required to report it to the attorney general. The bill was initially introduced by State Attorney General Marty Jackley, who emphasized the necessity of a comprehensive reporting law that ensures consumers are promptly notified in case of information loss.
