Alabama: Senate passes data breach notification bill

The Attorney General of Alabama, Steve Marshall, announced, on 1 March 2018, that the Alabama Senate had passed the bill for the Alabama Data Breach Notification Act (SB 318) ('the Bill'). 

Marshall said, ''I want to thank the Alabama Senate, and Senator [Arthur] Orr in particular, for moving this bill forward and taking us one step closer to giving Alabama consumers the same protections as the citizens of 48 other states who already receive notifications when their sensitive personal information has been hacked. This is a big win for Alabama consumers and I look forward to working with the House to cross the finish line.''
