The Connecticut AG’s office was one of the first to create a special privacy unit in 2011. And it was the first to exercise jurisdiction under the 2009 federal HITECH Act, which extends enforcement of federal privacy and security requirements governing protected health information to state AGs, suing Health Net in January 2010.
