On April 30, 2019, Maryland enacted an amendment to Maryland’s Personal Information Protection Act (Md. Code Ann. § 14-3504), which becomes effective on October 1, 2019. The amendment was introduced in response to a rise in consumer complaints about identity theft. Reportedly, over one third of all identity theft complaints in Maryland are based on credit card fraud. After significant previous expansions to the statute, this time the Maryland legislature sought to revise existing law to address how businesses cooperate with each other in order to facilitate incident response.
