New Jersey on the Forefront of Consumer Privacy and Security Law

Since the start of 2019, New Jersey has shown it is on the forefront of consumer privacy and security law. Last week we reported on Assembly Bill 3245 (AB 3245) that would enhance the state’s data breach notification requirements. In short, if signed, AB 3245, would require businesses to notify consumers of online account security breaches. This week, we are reporting on other related Assembly bills recently introduced including AB 4902which creates new obligations for commercial entities whose online website or services are accessed by individuals, and AB 7974 that regulates the use of a customer’s GPS data.

New Jersey’s proposed consumer privacy and security bills would create significant compliance obligations for companies that collect, use, or store personal data. Companies should consider assessing and reviewing their data collection activities, building robust data protection programs, and investing in written information security programs (WISPs) to prepare.

Check out the full update on some of New Jersey’s latest consumer privacy and security law initiatives including AB 4902 and AB 7974, available here on the Jackson Lewis website.
