Will 2010 See the Enactment of a Comprehensive Federal Data Security Law?

By InfoLawGroup LLP on November 05, 2009

Today the Senate Judiciary Committee approved two federal data security bills, Senator Leahy's S. 1490, the Personal Data Privacy and Security Act, and Senator Feinstein's S. 139, the Data Breach Notification Act. Of course, there have been dozens of proposed federal breach notification bills over the past several years, from both sides of the aisle. Senator Leahy's office issued this statement earlier today. While we cannot predict the fate of S. 1490 and S. 139, and we will have future occasion to comment on the bills in more detail, Tanya and I wanted to highlight a few notable provisions now.
