Tomorrow at 10:00 a.m., the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade will hold a hearing to determine what elements should be included in federal data-breach legislation. The following witnesses are scheduled to testify:
- Elizabeth Hyman, Tech America Executive Vice President of Public Policy
- Jennifer Glasgow, Acxiom Chief Privacy Officer
- Brian Dodge, Retail Industry Leaders Association Executive Vice President for Communications and Strategic Initiatives
- Woodrow Hartzog, Associate Professor at Cumberland School of Law
As we’ve previously reported, data breach has been a hot topic on the Hill at least since last year, when a number of bills on the topic were proposed to replace the current patchwork regime of state laws with a national standard for data security and breach notice. So far, no such legislation establishing a uniform federal law has been passed.
