The new law, which goes into effect Oct. 1, 2015, amends Connecticut’s current breach notification mandate and requires businesses to offer free identity-theft protection service for a year to the state’s residents who are affected by a data breach when certain information (e.g., resident’s name or Social Security number), has been affected by a security breach.
