On January 29, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced a settlement with a foreign computer manufacturer over allegations of a data breach of customer data. The AG’s office claims the security vulnerabilities allowing for the breach lasted almost a full calendar year. In addition to a $115,000 penalty, the manufacturer is required to “maintain [both] reasonable security policies designed to protect consumer personal information. . .[and] data security standards required by the credit card industry.”
