ANA Joins in Call for Federal Data Breach Legislation

ANA has joined with fifteen other industry groups to call for Congress to pass federal data breach legislation this year. The industry letter is available here.

High-profile data breaches have increased the focus of policymakers and consumers on data security and privacy issues. Several data security bills have been introduced in the Congress and at least five congressional committees have held hearings this year on the most recent breaches. The White House report on “big data” which was released on May 1st called for federal data security legislation. Our letter urges a national data security breach bill that would override the patchwork of state laws that currently exist.

If you have any questions, lease contact Dan Jaffe (djaffe@ana.net) or Keith Scarborough (kscarborough@ana.net) in ANA’s Washington, DC office at 202.296.1883.
