Yes, there are notification laws, which vary by state.  The NY state law is AB4254 which was signed in 2005, so this isn't a new issue.

And with data for 10,000 accounts hacked, this breach is a big deal.

I'm really curious, too. Data privacy isn't something to toy around with. In fact, most states have data breach laws in effect that mandate notification when a breach involves personally identifiable information, don't they?

Bizarre is a good word for it.

Why wouldn't they notify people who's data has been compromised? Since they have the email list, just sending a prompt email would be the bare minimum.  Publishing an article wouldn't hurt.  They really didn't do so? 

I'm curious to see how they respond to your questions.

Hi Noreen. This is one of the oddest stories I've read in a long time! It almost seems as if you received the email about the breach because you'd written about Gannett. Did you get that sense? Or do you think the timing was pure coincidence?
