Illinois Attorney General (AG) Lisa Madigan has spent the last decade focused on consumer privacy and data security issues, from the passage of data breach legislation in 2005 to her testimony in front of Congress earlier this year on federal data breach legislation. In this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor, Christine Czuprynski and Divonne Smoyer, CIPP/US, talk to Madigan about why state AGs are so focused on privacy these days and her aims to put more stringent rules around student and biometric data. “Today, 47 states have data breach notification laws that ensure that consumers know when their personal information has been compromised,” Madigan notes. “These laws have improved data security in the U.S. and brought much-needed attention to the harm that breaches can cause.”
