An Essential Aid


California SB 1836



California SB 1386 became effective in on 1st July 2003, amending civil codes 1798.29, 1798.82 and 1798.84.. It is a serious bill, with far reaching implications.


Essentially, it requires an agency, person or business that conducts business in California and owns or licenses computerized 'personal information' to disclose any breach of security (to any resident whose unencrypted data is believed to have been disclosed). 


The bill mandates various mechanisms and procedures with respect to many aspects of this scenario, subject also to other defined provisions.


Clearly this is a complex matter, requiring serious consideration and planning by all those affected. However, having stated this, the process need not be a drama in itself. As complex as it is, a toolkit has been developed to assist all those charged with the responsibility of addressing the requirements of the bill:



 SB1386 California Compliance  The SB 1386 Compliance Management Toolkit

Part of its remit is to help you understand those requirements, but it is also intended in part to help you avoid having to 're-invent the wheel' in terms of the steps necessary to comply.


The SB1386 Compliance Toolkit includes the following:
