Kathie McDonald-McClure and Matt San Roman, members of the Firm's Data Privacy & Security Service Team, were recently interviewed for Corporate Counsel magazine. The article, “Tennessee Enacted the Toughest Data Breach Law Yet,” addresses the new amendment to the Tennessee Identity Theft Deterrence Act of 1999. The amendment, among other changes, may eliminate the “encryption safe harbor” rule (pending a legislative fix to other language that may keep it in). Other states may follow suit if cybercriminals demonstrate ways around popular encryption methods.
