Proposed law in Indiana could protect residents from identity theft

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A proposed Indiana law could help protect residents from identity theft.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is making the proposal.

The law would require online businesses that store personal or financial data to make sure the information is secure and to delete information no longer needed. 

It would allow businesses to share or sell the information only when authorized by law.

Zoeller says his office has opened more than 1,300 identity theft-related complaints, including about 375 data breach cases.
