Senate Subcommittee to Examine Benefits of Data Breach Legislation
Monday, February 2, 2015 6:15 AM

The Senate Subcommittee of Consumer Protection, Product Safety, Insurance and Data Security will conduct a hearing on Thursday titled "Getting it Right on Data Breach and Notification Legislation in the 114th Congress."

In a statement, Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) said, "This hearing will help the committee gain a better understanding of how to develop a clear and consistent national data breach notification standard that will help both companies and consumers when they face data security challenges."

The hearing will feature testimony from experts to inform efforts in crafting a federal data breach bill and focus on issues including the consumer benefits of a uniform federal law in place of disparate state laws, the timeliness of notification to consumers and the definition of sensitive personally identifiable information.

The House subcommittee on commerce, manufacturing and trade held a similar hearing last week. The Credit Union National Association signed a letter with several other trade organizations that was submitted into the record for that hearing.
