Vermont Updates Its Data Breach Notification Law

Vermont legislature also amended its data breach notification law, with significant overhauls including expansion of its definition of personal information, and the narrowing of permissible circumstances under which substitute notice may be applied. Bill S.110 amending Vermont’s Security Breach Notice Act, V.S.A §§ 2330 & 2335, b23-0215, was signed into law by Governor Phil Scott, and will take effect July 1, 2020. In addition Bill S.110, creates a new duties and prohibitions with respect to student privacy directed towards educational technology services (similar to a law first enacted in California, and later adopted by over 20 states).

This amendment keeps Vermont in line with other states across the nation currently enhancing their data breach notification laws in light of recent large-scale data breaches and heightened public awareness.
