New Arizona ‘Data Breach’ Law
On April 11, 2018 Governor Ducey signed into law Arizona HB2154. The bill amended the existing Arizona ‘data breach’ law and was designed to add enhanced protection for customer and client data. The amended law added new notification procedures and requirements for any company that experiences a data breach in Arizona.
For instance, A.R.S. §18-551 now expands the definition of personal information to include all online data, including names when connected to health insurance and medical information. Passwords, security questions and answers and email addresses and passport and tax identification numbers are now defined as protected personal data. The new amendments also expand the definition to include any biometric information collected on customers and clients.
