At least 43 states and Puerto Rico introduced or considered close to 300 bills or resolutions that deal significantly with cybersecurity. Thirty-one states enacted cybersecurity-related legislation in 2019. Some of the key areas of legislative activity include:
Requiring businesses to implement training or specific types of security policies and practices
exempting cybersecurity operations information from public records laws
addressing the security of connected devices
regulating cybersecurity within the insurance industry
One example of a relevant 2019 bill is Illinois House Bill 2829, which is currently pending, and would create the Financial Institution Cybersecurity Act, & would require all financial persons and entities to maintain a cybersecurity program to protect the confidentiality of their information system.
