Florida’s definition of “personal information” includes: a user name or e-mail address in addition to a password or security question that would permit access to an online account.
Reporting to the Department of Legal Affairs within the Attorney General’s office must be done if the breach involves over 500 Florida residents.
If an entity discovers circumstances requiring notice of more than 1,000 individuals at a single time, all consumer reporting agencies that compile and maintain files on those affected consumers must be notified on the incident.
Vendors are held to the same data protection requirements as data owners.
If a vendor is breached, they must notify the data owner within 10 days of discovery.
Specific requirements are associated regarding driver’s licences and the personal information conveyed through “swiping” the ID card.
Specific health information requirements may be applicable.
If the breach affects residents in other states, you will need to notify those residents using that state’s rules.
