State laws enforce data privacy

From the Wall Street Journal:

Nevada is the first of several states adopting new laws that will force businesses — from hair stylists to hospitals — to revamp the way they protect customer data.  Massachusetts has already passed a similar law which goes into effect January 1st, and Michigan and Washington State are both considering similar legislation.

While just a few states have adopted such measures so far, the new patchwork of regulations is something many businesses will have to navigate, since the laws apply to out-of-state companies with operations or customers in those states.
