Breached Companies in California Required to Offer Identity Theft Prevention Services

 

On September 30, 2014, California Governor Jerry Brown signed an extension of a bill requiring businesses to provide security measures for maintaining information about a California resident. If the business was involved in a security breach involving exposed social security numbers and drivers license numbers, then they must provide identity theft prevention and mitigation services for the affected people for no less than 12 months.
