Policymakers Renew Focus on Data Breach Laws

Despite being a top priority for the Obama administration and leadership in Congress over the past year, legislation to establish a national data security and breach standard remains undefined.

  • What action the FTC has taken to protect consumers;
  • The federal focus on new data breach laws;
  • Global policy trends in data breach notification.
