Each year, millions of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) records are compromised because of data breaches. Reporting breaches to the proper authorities is complex; state regulations vary state to state and where federal law applies it preempts what individual states require. The card brands, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, as well as other pertinent national and international governing bodies also have reporting requirements.

Prominent regulation and regulating entities with unique reporting requirements include:

  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Health Information Technology for Economic Clinical Health (HITECH) Act
  • Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA)
  • Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
  • Secret Service
  • Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
  • 47 Individual States, 3 Territories and the District of Columbia

The bottom line is that data breach reporting compliance is no easy task. The consequences of noncompliance are serious, and can include greater regulatory scrutiny as well as financial, civil and even criminal penalties for negligence.

How many businesses, merchants, employers, non-profits and various other entities that you can think of know how to spot a breach, much less know when and how to report the right information to a maze of oversight authorities at the right time?
