California Attorney General Xavier Becerra unveiled revamped data breach notification laws for the state, TechCrunch reports. California Assembly Bill 1130 would require companies to notify individuals when passport and government ID numbers and biometric data have been stolen in a breach. Becerra and Democratic State Assemblyman Marc Levine said the state decided to propose updates to the laws in response to the Marriott data breach. “We have an opportunity today to make our data breach law stronger and that’s why we’re moving today to make it more difficult for hackers and cybercriminals to get your private information,” Becerra said. “AB 1130 closes a gap in California law and ensures that our state remains the nation’s leader in data privacy and protection.”
