Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel spoke in favor of the legislation to require companies to inform the state residents of data breaches. She stated that HBs 4186-4187 should go farther and require the Attorney General’s office to be notified in case of a data breach as well. HBs 4186-4187 were referred to House ways and Means on unanimous votes by the Financial Services committee.

The bills require that a company notify the state of a data breach within 45 days. It also requires companies to protect personal information, and to investigate both potential and actual breaches.
