A new study reveals that more than 1,500 data breaches were reported to the NYS Attorney General in 2017–a significant jump from 2016–and that the personal records of 9.2 million New Yorkers (thanks largely to the Equifax breach) were exposed.  The findings have prompted Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to push for new cyber-security legislation that he says would close gaps in New York’s data security laws.  He also plans to introduce legislation to address misuse of personal information, like the recently announced problems with Facebook information.  More details available HERE.
