From the Associated Press:

The Kentucky Senate has passed a cybersecurity bill aimed at boosting protections for information stored in government computers.

Another key provision would require government agencies to notify people when thieves steal personal data from government computers.

The Senate vote Friday sends the bill back to the House, which will consider changes.

The measure is a top priority of state Auditor Adam Edelen. He says the bill deals with one of the biggest public protection issues of the digital age.

The bill would require state and local government agencies to notify people affected by a cybersecurity breach within 35 days of the incident.

Edelen says Kentucky is among a handful of states without a law requiring government to notify people of such breaches.
