Last week, U.S. House of Representatives legislators passed the Data Accountability and Trust Act (DATA), which requires security policies for consumer information, regulates the information broker industry, and establishes a national breach notification law. The bill now moves to the U.S. Senate, which is also considering a similar measure.

This is interesting Jack, because if I understand correct, this bill is forcing U.S. organisations to be proactive in protecting consumer data, rather than reactive, i.e. informing consumer that a breach has occurred after the event 😉
