To help businesses comply with amendments to Connecticut's data breach notification law, which becomes effective October 1, 2012, CT Attorney General George Jepsen's Privacy Task Force has made an email address - ag.breach@ct.gov - available to facilitate breach reporting, reports Hartford Business.com.

According to the AG's press release, a Web page detailing the new law’s requirements will go live on the AG's Website when the amendment goes into effect. The key change made by the amendment is that persons, including businesses, required to notify residents of the Nutmeg State of a security breach must also notify the Attorney General's office within the same time frame. The email address and informational website should facilitate the breach reporting process in Connecticut.
