Oregon updates and expands data breach statute

Alston & Bird write:

Oregon has updated its data breach notification statute to broaden the definition of personal information that will trigger notice to individuals and add the requirement to notify the state’s Attorney General of certain breaches. Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed into law SB601 on June 10, and it was enrolled on June 15. The bill updates the Oregon Consumer Identity Theft Protection Act of 2007 (the “Act”).
