Breach Notification: Vermont And Wisconsin Do It Right

While surfing the Web, I was pleased to discover that both the Vermont Attorney General's Office and the Wisconsin Office of Privacy Protection publish on their Web sites the breach notification letters they received from companies, schools and governments. Vermont's coverage starts with March 2008. Wisconsin's coverage starts with 2006.

This is great news. These online disclosures allow residents of these states to verify any breach notification letters they may receive directly from companies. I have written previously in this blog about other states that provide similar online disclosures: Maryland and New Hampshire.

In my opinion, all 50 states should do this. There is no downside. Sadly, my state, Massachusetts currently does not.
