house Bill H.R. 104

Should There Be Federal Penalties When Companies Don't Tell Customers About A Data Breach?

Argument in favor

Creating criminal charges for failing to notify customers of a data breach ensures that businesses are good custodians of customer data.

This is a no brainer. Bring this bill to the floor and pass it.

All companies and or commercial entities that have and use my personal information should be held responsible for any damages due to misuse of this information, especially if they fail to secure it properly. For example encrypt data at rest.

Argument opposed

Customers whose data is breached can already sue the entity that let their information be compromised in civil court. This bill is redundant and unnecessary.

No criminal charges but there should be civil remedies.

Companies already do an excellent job of informing customers of security breaches, such a law will only complicate things.
