Leslie Rutledge Urges Data Breach Law Enforcement

Little Rock - Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has added her name to a letter signed by 47 state attorneys general urging Congress to ensure that any future federal data breach notification or data security law provides consumers with the best protection.

The letter emphasizes the importance of maintaining the states' authority to enforce data breach and data security laws, as well as their ability to enact laws to address future data security risks.

Rutledge and the other attorneys general caution against federal pre-emption of state data breach and security law and argue that any federal law must not diminish the important role states already have to protect consumers from data breaches and identity theft.

The letter urges Congress to preserve existing protections under state law to ensure they enforce breach notification requirements.
