Reply From Attorney General Coakley's Office
Friday, November 02, 2007
A few days ago, I sent an e-mail letter to Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley's office. Yesterday, I received this e-mail reply:
From: Email Correspondence (AGO)
Thank you for contacting the office of Attorney General Martha Coakley. I have forwarded your e-mail along to the member of our staff who is handling this office’s compliance with the new breach notification laws which took effect on October 31, 2007. Although, there are currently no plans to post breach notifications online, due to your correspondence, this idea is currently being considered by our Consumer Protection Division. Thank you for taking the time to contact us. It is important that we hear from constituents about important issues such as this.
Community Information and Education Division
It's nice to receive a quick reply. I'm glad that the state is considering the posting of breach notifications online. We'll see what they finally decide to do. If you are a Massachusetts resident, I hope that you'll write to them also, and tell them you want breach notifications published online.
