South Dakota lawmakers delay action on data breach legislation

AP reports:

A legislative panel has delayed action on a bill that would require companies to inform South Dakota residents whose personal information was acquired in a data breach.

The Senate Judiciary Committee plans to take up the proposal again Thursday.

Attorney General Marty Jackley’s bill would require affected South Dakotans be notified within 60 days.

The plan would also require companies to inform the attorney general if a breach affected more than 250 residents.
