States Pass Privacy Laws

via Network Magazine's blog:

As of today, eight state legislatures have passed privacy legislation, largely in reaction to the recent, well-publicized privacy breach incidents at ChoicePoint, Axciom, Bank of America, LexisNexis, and others (and more states are debating such laws). This morning I read the eight states' laws to compare and contrast and see what, if any, unusual requirements they might contain (yes, maybe I do need to get a life). Although these state efforts may one day be superseded by a national law proposed by California Senator Dianne Feinstein based on her state's privacy law, the laws are all similar enough that if you understand the state laws, you'll be ready for the new national rules.
