Privacy and personal information are strictly regulated in Canada, the European Union (E.U.) and the United Kingdom (UK). In the United States (US) regulation of the personal information by the private sector, is minimal. However, as of March 28, 2018, all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands, have enacted laws requiring notification of security breaches involving personal information. With legislation much like the UK, California is considered the toughest of all 50 states.
