“Reasonable security” has been a requirement set by regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and California’s AB 1950. Failure to meet the requirement could be the basis of a common tort legal cause of action called “negligence.” A “cause of action” is a reason you can sue someone, and a tort is a wrong that allows an injured party to seek relief from a court in a civil suit.
To sue someone for negligence, you have to usually prove four elements:
- The defendant had a duty to the plaintiff
- The defendant breached the duty
- The breach of defendant’s duty was the cause of plaintiff’s harm
- The harm to the plaintiff resulted in articulable damages.
