BILL:

S.5601 (Carlucci) / A.7167 (Kavanagh)

Support

SUBJECT:

Relates to Notification of a Security Breach

 

DATE:

June 20, 2017

 

The Business Council of New York State, the state’s leading statewide business and industry association, opposes this legislation that broadens the scope of information covered under the notification provisions regarding security breaches and mandates new reporting systems.
We have numerous concerns regarding this legislation including the following:

In summary, this legislation imposes significant new – and in some cases, duplicative – compliance obligations on business, in addition to creating vague new definitions and standards.  For the reasons stated above, the Business Council opposes adoption S. 5601 / A. 7167.
