U.S. Senator Proposes National Standards for Data Security Breaches

This is a follow-up to the January 10, 2007 post entitled Paper on Data Security Breach Notification.

That post discussed a recent proposal from a University of Ottawa research group to create a federal data breach notification law in Canada. Such a law would require organizations, government agencies and businesses to notify individuals when their personal information is exposed to potential theft and misuse due to a computer security breach.

Similar laws exist in a number of U.S. states.

And U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein has reintroduced a pair of bills that would attempt to set national requirements for consumer notification in the event of data security breaches.
