Bill Calls for Notification When Database ID Theft Occurs

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on February 18, 2005

From the press release: U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.)…called for a Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on legislation that she sponsored which would require businesses or government agencies to notify individuals if a database has been broken into and personal data has been compromised, including Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses and credit cards. This follows two recent incidents – involving databases at Science Applications International Corporation and ChoicePoint — which underscore the need for federal legislation.”
