On March 2, the Wyoming legislature passed S.F. 35 and S.F. 36, which amend the state’s Consumer Protection Act to enhance privacy protections for sensitive personal information. With limited exception for entities covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, S.B. 35 subjects individuals and commercial entities to additional data breach notification requirements, including providing Wyoming residents with information such as (i) the type of information subject to the breach, (ii) a general description of the breach incident, (iii) the approximate date of the breach, (iv) the steps taken by the individual or entity to prevent further breaches, (v) advice on how to review accounts and monitor credit reports, and (vi) whether notification was delayed by a law enforcement investigation. S.B. 36 expands the categories of personal identifying information that trigger protections under the Consumer Protection Act. Assuming signature by Governor Mead, the laws will take effect July 1, 2015.
