Beshear Opposing Federal Legislation Limiting State Consumer Protection Laws on Data Breaches

Attorney General Andy Beshear is joining a coalition of attorneys general to stop federal legislation that would do away with state laws providing safeguards for Kentuckians during many data breaches. According to Beshear, the Data Acquisition and Technology Accountability and Security Act would chip away at Kentucky’s consumer protection laws that provide Kentuckians data security protections. The proposed federal legislation would also severely affect the ability of states to obtain consumer data security protections in settlements with companies, while protecting companies from effective enforcement efforts of state attorneys general.
