Brandon N. Robinson, attorney in the firm’s Birmingham, Ala., office and member of the Privacy and Data Security Practice Group, was quoted in the Birmingham Business Journal regarding a recent report from Marketplace, which listed Alabama as one of three states without legislation requiring its public companies to inform customers of a data breach. Mr. Robinson discussed the industry-specific federal laws requiring companies to report data breaches. He specifically noted the provisions for health care providers under HIPPA and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 for financial institutions.
