Senators data-security & Privacy bill

Senators propose sweeping data-security bill. Finally Federal lawmakers are grappling with the difficult issue of leaked data flowing from aggregator, broker and reseller databanks that have turned into a flood since California required public notice of data breaches. This is likely to be a thorny issue plagued with re-writes and amendments for years as it affects so many sources.

One truly difficult issue is the requirement being discussed that would make it mandatory for small and microbusinesses that hold data on more than 10,000 individuals to disclose data breaches of stored customer financial and SSN information.

But finally data security is being taken very seriously and we'll all need to pay attention to protecting every source of possible leaks of sensitive customer information.
