There are specific considerations when determining if a breach is reportable.
Upon becoming aware of a breach of the security of the system, conduct in good faith a reasonable and prompt investigation to determine the likelihood that personal identifying information has been or will be misused.
Notifications may only be given by specific methods. In addition, Wyoming has a separate substitute notice allowances based on businesses operating in-state or out-of-state.
If a vendor is breached, they must report it to the data owner. Unlike other states, Wyoming allows the data owner and the vendor to decide who will be responsible to complete the reporting and consumer notification.
If your breach affects residents in other states, you will need to notify those residents using those states’ rules.
