New York Attorney General Letitia James has announced that online retailer Bombas agreed to pay $65,000 and improve its data security after failing to properly notify customers after a data breach. The breach, which occurred between September 2014 and January 2015, involved a combined 39,561 customers. Bombas waited until May 2018 to notify all affected customers and relevant New York agencies of the breaches, and by doing so violated the General Business Law. “This agreement will ensure better protection of New Yorkers’ personal information and notice of a breach in a timely manner. My office will continue our commitment to combat inadequate data security in New York,” James said. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is also clamping down on breaches as Fox 47 News reports she is ordering three companies hand over information related to the recent breach of Quest Diagnostics. Meanwhile, medical company Opko Health announced it sustained a data breach involving 400,000 customers.
