Email  Print Print  

Congress is considering passing HR 4127 which would impose a weak federal standard of notification in the event of a security breach and identity theft. This bill is currently weaker than the types of laws in place on the state level in many states and would be a backwards step in protecting the American people. According to, if this bill were law then over eighty of the security breaches reported this year would’ve gone unreported! If you have a moment, read this letter to the Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection outlining why this bill is weak and why it’s a step backwards in privacy protections. And if you’re interested in reading the bill itself, it can be found at

Currently, the has a petition that can you sign (electronically) so you can let your representative know how you feel about this bill.
