Attorney General Curtis Hill on Wednesday joined cybersecurity experts at a U.S. Chamber of Commerce virtual event to discuss his intent to establish a rule in Indiana that would better protect Hoosiers from cyberattacks, the fastest-growing type of crime in the United States.
Attorney General Hill’s proposed safe harbor rule would give businesses operating in Indiana a better understanding of how to protect consumers’ data and reward businesses who comply with steps laid out in the rule. Should the rule be implemented, Indiana would be the first state in the U.S. to approach this issue via regulation.
Hoosiers who were impacted by the Equifax data breach should watch for an important announcement about obtaining a restitution payment in light of the breach. More information about obtaining a payment will be available soon.
In July, the Office of the Attorney General filed a notice of intent to adopt the proposed rule. The proposed rule is expected to be published by the Indiana Register, after which there will be a period for public comment followed by a public hearing on the rule. The public hearing will be advertised and available virtually. It is expected that the proposed rule will take effect by the end of the year.
