TD Bank has agreed to pay Massachusetts $625,000 to settle claims that it allegedly failed to provide timely notification to the state or affected individuals of a 2012 data breach.  While the bank denies violating any laws or committing any wrongdoing, it has entered an assurance of discontinuance agreement with the state Attorney General’s office in order to “avoid the time, expense, and uncertainty of litigation.”  This settlement comes just months after TD Bank agreed to pay a penalty of $850,000 following a two-year investigation of the breach by nine other state attorneys general.
