New Hampshire Governor Signs Insurance Data Security Law

Hunton Andrews Kurth writes:

On August 2, 2019, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed into law SB 194 (the “Bill”), which requires insurers licensed in the state (“licensees”) to put in place data security programs and report cybersecurity events.

A few weeks ago, Delaware signed a similar bill into law.
