Minnesota data breach law demonstrates risks of knee-jerk reactions

I just shook my head yesterday when I heard about a proposed law in Minnesota that would require breach notification within 48 hours of discovery, the offer of free credit monitoring for one year, and golly gee, a $100 gift card that would be valid for one year if the breached entity was a retailer. 

Apparently I wasn’t the only one to view the proposal in a somewhat negative light.
