Vermont: Governor signs data privacy bill into law

The Governor of Vermont, Phil Scott, signed, on 5 March 2020, the bill for An Act Relating to Data Privacy and Consumer Protection (S. 110) ('the Bill') into law. The Bill requires, among other things, the notification to consumers of data breaches within 45 days after the discovery or notification of the breach by data collectors that own or license computerised personally identifiable information or login credentials that includes personal information concerning a consumer. In addition, the Bill notes that if a security breach is limited to an unauthorised acquisition of login credentials, data collectors are only required to notify the Vermont Attorney General or the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation.

The Bill would take effect on 1 July 2020.
