Pryor, Rockefeller introduce legislation to protect consumers’ personal info

Pryor, Rockefeller introduce legislation to protect consumers’ personal info

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.) today reintroduced legislation to require businesses and nonprofit organizations that store consumers’ personal information to put in place strong security features to safeguard sensitive data, alert consumers when this data has been breached, and provide affected individuals with the tools they need to protect their credit and finances.  Currently, there is no single federal standard for guarding many types of consumer information.

“If companies are going to collect and store consumers’ personal information, safeguarding that information should be priority number one.  Unfortunately, we’re seeing some very popular companies outsmarted by hackers.  In fact, since we first introduced this legislation, we’ve seen major data breaches affect customers at Target, Best Buy, Walgreens and Sony,” said Senator Pryor, Chairman of the U.S.
