Data Breach Legislation “Stalled”
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.November 3, 2011
POLITICO reports that the Senate Commerce Committee is "still at the drawing board" on data breach legislation efforts. While there has been some progress, the report suggests that "disagreements about the bill's scope and application have been pervasive enough that the committee decided against marking up the data security proposal at an executive session Wednesday" and are looking at a December markup instead. House Energy and Commerce Committee members also "continue to squabble over data security," the report states. Meanwhile, Inc. reports on the implications of potential online tracking legislation for small businesses.
