As the privacy debate continues to heat up in Congress, the issue of data security is seeing renewed attention. Two similar bills have recently been introduced in the House that include security breach notification requirements. First, Representative Rush (D.,IL) reintroduced the Data Accountability and Trust Act (H.R. 1707), which includes wide-sweeping data security requirements, including directing the FTC to issue regulations requiring persons engaged in interstate commerce that own or possess personal information in electronic form to implement information security policies and procedures. H.R. 1707 also would establish a nationwide standard for security breach notification for breach incidents involving personal information in electronic form. The bill would be enforced not only by the FTC, but also by state AGs. In addition, on May 11, 2011, Representative Stearns (R.,FL) introduced a data security bill which contained many similarities to HR 1707 but would require that companies provide security breach notices “without unreasonable delay,” compared to H.R. 1707 which would provide companies with up to 60 days following discovery of a breach.
