“On Jan. 13 the White House announced President Barack Obama’s proposal for new data privacy legislation, the Personal Data Notification and Protection Act. Many states have laws today that require corporations and government agencies to notify consumers in the event of a breach – but it is not enough.”
Slowly, ever so slowly, legislation continues to try to afford some protections for citizens of the Internet. The “Brave New World” of global online communication is like a dike with too many leaks to patch. As soon as we stop one, another one crops up.
And we don’t expect the problems to end soon.
