This bill requires entities that compile or maintain computerized records that include information permitting access to an online account to disclose to consumers any breach of security of the information. Under current law, businesses and public entities are required to disclose breaches involving personal information such as Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers, or credit or debit card numbers, in combination with any required security code, access code, or password that would permit access to an individual's financial account. The bill adds user names, email addresses, or any other account holder identifying information, in combination with any password or security question and answer that would permit access to an online account, to the list of breaches requiring disclosure. Notification of a breach provides a consumer with the opportunity to quickly change online account information to prevent outside access to the account, and puts a consumer on notice to monitor for potential identity theft.
