The state of Alabama came late to the party, as the 50th and final state to enact data security laws. To make up for lost time, perhaps, Alabama’s data breach notification laws are now among the toughest across the nation, including the following obligations:

  1. All covered entities as well as third-party agents are required to “implement and maintain reasonable security measures to protect sensitive personally identifying information against a breach of security.”
