North Carolina Amendments to Data Breach Law Finally Introduced

April 2019

On April 16, 2019, Representatives Saine, Jones and Reives introduced House Bill 904, the long anticipated amendments to the North Carolina Identity Theft Protection Act, N.C. Gen. Stat. § 75-61 et seq.. We first wrote about the proposed legislation in February 2018 [Two Proposed Data Security Laws Reflect National Trend Toward Affirmative Responsibilities]. The bill also amends the definition of identifying information in North Carolina’s criminal identity theft statute, N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-113.20(b), adopted by reference in the Identity Theft Protection Act’s definition of “personal information.”

HB904, which can be found here, looks a lot like we expected. The full article and highlights can be found here.
