The state of New Mexico has joined 47 other U.S. states in enacting a data breach notification law, after Gov. Susan Martinez signed the legislation earlier this month, BankInfoSecurity reports. Martinez signed the bill April 6, a little more than three weeks after the state legislature passed the measure. This leaves Alabama and South Dakota as the two remaining U.S. states without a data breach notification law.
