A civil provision is now available, prescribing damages for an entity that is negligent in using “reasonable security practices and procedures” while handling “sensitive personal data or information”, resulting in wrongful loss or wrongful gain to any person. Further, criminal punishment is also provided for persons who: Disclose sensitive personal information without the consent of the person or in breach of the relevant contract, with the intention of, or knowing that the disclosure would cause wrongful loss or gain.
