Attorney General (AG) Lawrence Wasden is Idaho’s longest-serving AG, having served since his election in 2002.

He also has served as president of both the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), the nonpartisan professional association for state AGs, as well as the chair of the Conference of Western Attorneys General (CWAG), an educational association focusing on legal and policy issues of importance to states in the western U.S.

In this interview, Wasden shares his views on the increased focus by state AGs on privacy enforcement and regulation as well as the changing landscape in data breach notification laws.
