Tennessee Breach-Notification Law Indicative of Data-Security Regulators’ Lack of Creativity

David Zetoony of Bryan Cave writes:

There is no shortage of data-privacy and security laws in the United States. By our count there are now about 300 state and federal statutes. They include breach-notification laws, data-disposal laws, data-safeguard laws, payment card information-protection laws … the list goes on and on. Many of these laws, and practical strategies for managing compliance with them, are discussed in a Washington Legal Foundation Contemporary Legal Notes paper I authored, Data Privacy and Security Practical Guide for In-House Counsel.

Nonetheless the push continues to be a push for more regulation to make sure that the consumer data held by companies is secure.

Quantity does not, in this case, equal quality. In fact, it means the opposite.
