Singleton, Caputo, Jasey, Lagana, Quijano Bill to Strengthen Consumer Protections against Security Breaches Clears First Legislative Hurdle(TRENTON) - An Assembly panel on Thursday approved legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Ralph Caputo, Mila Jasey, Joseph Lagana and Annette Quijano to ensure that consumers are informed of security breaches made to their account.

"What we have learned from the recent security breaches at major retailers is that they can happen to anywhere and to virtually any company, large or small. It is essential for consumers to be kept informed of data breaches so that they can take the necessary steps to protect their information."
