Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy (D-CT) signed a new data breach security bill into law on June 30, making the Constitution State the latest to beef up its data security protections.

Earlier this year, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Illinois, and North Dakota also updated their data breach laws, and Alabama is on its way to becoming the 48th state to adopt such legislation. New York is also considering a bill to update information security laws while the New Hampshire legislature just passed a bill requiring that state’s education department notify students and teachers if their personal data was possibly breached.
