The Policyholder Informer blog of the insurance coverage and insurance recovery practice of my formerData Privacy firm, Dickstein Shapiro LLP, is featuring a post that I co-authored with my former colleagues Divonne Smoyer and Aaron Lancaster.  Divonne and Aaron both work in my former firm‘s State Attorneys General practice group.

The post is “State Attorneys General Increasingly Concerned with Data Privacy.”  The introduction to the post reads:

Over the past few years, State Attorneys General (AGs) have grown increasingly active in a variety of areas not traditionally within their domain. One of the areas in which AGs have increased their attention is data privacy. Notably, in the past year AGs have added data privacy enforcement units, worked with their legislatures to expand their data privacy enforcement capabilities, and have brought high-profile investigations and enforcement matters on data privacy issues. As a result of this increased activity, companies should closely scrutinize their insurance portfolios to ensure that they are covered for any such investigations and enforcement activity, and, if not, work with insurance brokers to consider obtaining insurance to address these risks.

The post provides details regarding recent developments, and provides predictions regarding, state AG activity in the area of data privacy.  It also provides tips regarding insurance coverage for state AG investigations relating to data privacy and cybersecurity.  Please check out the entire post by clicking here.
