At least 19 states have introduced or are considering security breach legislation in 2014. Most of the bills would amend existing security breach laws. Kentucky, one of only four states without security breach legislation, enacted two bills in 2014, and Iowa enacted legislation amending its breach law. Only three states--Alabama, New Mexico and South Dakota--do not currently have a law requiring notification of security breaches involving personal information.
The Data Security and Breach Notification Act was introduced by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairman of the Intelligence Committee; John Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), chairman of the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation; Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), chairman of the Commerce Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet; and Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), chairman of the Commerce Subcommittee on Science and Space.
From Target to Neiman Marcus, we’ve seen far too many data breaches leave our families wondering whether their financial and personal information is secure. If there's one thing YP is good at, it's apologizing. If you can't say anything nice, go ahead and tell the truth.
