Federal Data Breach Law?
As you know, California started the trend of general-business data breach notification laws, with most other states following. Now, a bill has passed the US House
that would impose a federal data-breach law. Don't know if it's really needed, given state efforts already, and don't know if it would be harsher than the HITECH data breach rules, but something to keep an eye on. (Of course, the Senate's doing nothing but healthcare these days -- won't even pick up the small-company Red Flags relief bill that passed the House unanimously).
