AN ACT to amend the general business law, in  relation  to  requiring  a
  consumer  credit  reporting  agency to offer identity theft prevention
  and mitigation services in the case of a breach  of  the  security  of
  such agency's system

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision (n) of section 380-t of  the  general  business
law is amended by adding a new paragraph 3 to read as follows:
  (3)(I) UPON A BREACH OF THE SECURITY OF THE SYSTEM OF A CONSUMER CRED-
IT  REPORTING  AGENCY  WHICH  INCLUDES  ANY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, SUCH
AGENCY SHALL OFFER TO EACH CONSUMER, WHOSE INFORMATION, INCLUDING SOCIAL
SECURITY NUMBER, WAS BREACHED OR IS REASONABLY  BELIEVED  TO  HAVE  BEEN
BREACHED, REASONABLE IDENTITY THEFT PREVENTION SERVICES AND, IF APPLICA-
BLE,  IDENTIFY THEFT MITIGATION SERVICES FOR A PERIOD NOT TO EXCEED FIVE
YEARS AT NO COST TO SUCH CONSUMERS. SUCH AGENCY SHALL PROVIDE ALL INFOR-
MATION NECESSARY FOR SUCH CONSUMERS TO ENROLL IN SUCH SERVICES AND SHALL
INCLUDE INFORMATION ON HOW SUCH CONSUMERS CAN REQUEST A SECURITY FREEZE.
A CONSUMER CREDIT REPORTING AGENCY SHALL NOT BE REQUIRED TO  OFFER  SUCH
SERVICES  IF,  AFTER AN APPROPRIATE INVESTIGATION, THE AGENCY REASONABLY
DETERMINES THAT THE BREACH OF SECURITY IS UNLIKELY TO RESULT IN HARM  TO
THE CONSUMERS WHOSE INFORMATION HAS BEEN BREACHED.
  (II)  "BREACH OF THE SECURITY OF THE SYSTEM" AS USED IN THIS PARAGRAPH
SHALL HAVE THE SAME DEFINITION AS IN PARAGRAPH (C) OF SUBDIVISION ONE OF
SECTION EIGHT HUNDRED NINETY-NINE-AA OF THIS CHAPTER.
  § 2.  This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day  after  it  shall
have  become  a law and shall apply to any breach of the security of the
system of a consumer credit reporting agency that occurred no more  than
three years prior to the effective date of this act.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
