Senators Patrick Leahy (D, VT) and Arlen Specter (R, PA) have proposed legislation to "deal with" losses of personally identifying information and the security problems that lead to it. I'm not convinced it's the right architecture. Comprehensive legislative solutions seldom are. I've written more about the legislation at "Between the Lines."
One thing I learned working for government is that if you don't solve your own problems, the legislature will do it for you–and you probably won't like the results. So it was with Sarbanes-Oxley and, perhaps, now with a data privacy and security.From | Between the Lines |
