Gov. Kate Brown, D-Ore., has signed a new state data breach measure into law, GovTech reports. Starting in June, Oregon residents affected by a data breach will need to be notified within 45 days after the incident was discovered, unless the revelation would impact a law enforcement investigation. Credit reporting agencies would also no longer be able to charge citizens a fee if they wish to freeze or unfreeze their credit reports. The National Conference of State Legislatures found at least 29 states are taking similar measures to bolster their data breach notification laws following the Equifax data breach.
