Mississippi becomes the 46th state to enact a data breach notification law: Only four states remain without similar laws

Mississippi has joined the majority of other states and now has a law that governs an organization’s obligations should it suffer a data breach relative to Personal Information (PI) of a Mississippi resident. Only four states in the United States have not passed similar legislation – Alabama, Kentucky, New Mexico and South Dakota.

Similar to many other state data breach notification laws, the obligation falls on any organization which owns, licenses or maintains PI of any resident of Mississippi. Like others, Mississippi defines PI as an individual’s first name or first initial and last name along with Social Security number, driver’s license number or financial account number or credit card number (along with the required security or access code).
