FYI, California has a security requirement law on the books. Here's
the summary, along with a link to the text of the law:
of Personal Information - Civil Code section 1798.81.5. This law
requires specified businesses to use safeguards to ensure the
security of Californians' personal information (defined as name plus
SSN, driver's license/state ID, financial account number) and to
contractually require third parties to do the same. It does not apply
to businesses that are subject to certain other information security laws.
This law is in addition to the security breach notice law,
implemented in 2003, the first of such laws in the nation:
* Security Breach Notice - Civil Code sections
and 1798.84. This law requires a business or a State agency that
maintains unencrypted computerized data that includes personal
information, as defined, to notify any California resident whose
unencrypted personal information was, or is reasonably believed to
have been, acquired by an unauthorized person. The type of
information that triggers the notice requirement is an individual's
name plus one or more of the following: Social Security number,
driver's license or California Identification Card number, financial
account numbers, medical information or health insurance information.
The law's intention is to give affected individuals the opportunity
to take steps to protect themselves from identity theft. See the
Office of Privacy Protection's
Practices in relation to this law.
