Maryland Information Security Breach Notices

As of January 2008, any business that retains consumer records is required by Maryland law to notify a consumer who is a resident of Maryland if his or her information is compromised. The "security breach law" also requires the business to notify the Office of the Attorney General. This webpage contains links to all notices sent to the OAG since the law took effect. Below is a chart containing the case number, date of the notice, business name, how many people are affected what information was compromised and how it was lost. This information will be updated weekly. For more information on the security breach law, click here.
