Millions of individuals in the U.S. and abroad were the victims of recent data breaches that compromised personal information such as Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and addresses. Given the scope of these breaches and the evident vulnerability of both corporations and private citizens, Business Insurance asked professionals familiar with privacy laws and regulations for their insight regarding Congress’ interest in establishing a national standard for breach notifications. In the article, Morrison & Foerster’s Nathan Taylor expresses the need for a nationwide standard that would eliminate the confusion of the current regulatory landscape’s patchwork of guidelines, but emphasizes that standards should be “strong, yet flexible and scalable”.
