HB14-1140: Compromised Personal Or Financial Identifying Info

Privacy & Technology
Bill Number: HB14-1140
Year: 2014
ACLU Position: Active Support
Sponsors: Conti


If a state entity experiences an accidental or deliberate event that results in or constitutes a threat of the unauthorized access, loss, disclosure, modification, disruption, or destruction of personal or financial identifying information (security incident) and determines that the security incident occurred due to an error of the state entity or any employee of the state entity or due to a lack of security protecting the personal or financial identifying information held by the state entity, the state entity must notify any person who may be impacted by the security incident of the following:

• That a security incident occurred and that the security of the person’s personal or financial identifying information held by the state entity may have been compromised;

• That the person is entitled to have the state entity pay for identity theft protection services on the person’s behalf for a limited time after the security incident occurred; and

• That the person may contact the state entity for further information. The state entity shall include relevant contact information for the state entity in the notification.
The bill requires the chief information officer of the office of information technology to promulgate rules necessary for the implementation of these requirements. The rules promulgated by the chief information officer apply to each executive branch department of the state and may be adopted by any state entity that is not an executive branch department. A state entity that is not an executive branch department and that does not adopt the rules of the chief information officer is required to promulgate its own rules or adopt its own policies as necessary for the implementation of these requirements.
