Data Security/Breach Notification

Monday, June 6, 2016 - 2:00pm

Background

In today’s tough economy, businesses depend more than ever on having beneficial and trusted relationships with their customers. Thus, protecting sensitive, personally identifiable information from theft or illegal uses has been and will continue to be a top priority for the business community.

2016 U.S. Chamber Policy Priorities – Data Security/Breach Notification

Support enactment of a truly uniform federal standard for breach notification that is consistent with the best approaches in state law.  To be workable and effective, any such legislation must recognize that both consumers and U.S. businesses are victims of crimes that give rise to a data breach.  The legislation should contain carefully drafted provisions, including—but not limited to—preemption, liability, and enforcement.
