Sec. 45.48.070. Treatment of certain breaches.
(a) If a breach of the security of the information system containing personal information on a state resident that is maintained by an information recipient occurs, the information recipient is not required to comply with AS 45.48.010 - 45.48.030.

(b) If an information recipient notifies an information distributor of a breach under (a) of this section, the information distributor shall comply with AS 45.48.010 - 45.48.030 as if the breach occurred to the information system maintained by the information distributor.
