Data Breach Expert Discusses Trends
DATA PROTECTIONNovember 23, 2011
Privacy expert Lucy Thomson, CIPP/G, discusses current trends in data breach notification rules and regulations in this GovInfoSecurity podcast. Many governments are strengthening laws, Thomson says, but discrepancies in breach notification laws are particularly evident in the area of encryption standards. "There are six or seven different standards that states use, so global businesses have to sort through inconsistencies and ambiguities." Thomson says that she advises companies to "follow the strictest standards, and then they'll be safe."
