Calif. Privacy Bills To Inspire More Disclosure Rules

September 13, 2013

Tyler Newby, co-chair of Fenwick’s privacy and information security group, is quoted in a Law360 article titled “Calif. Privacy Bills To Inspire More Disclosure Rules.”

The article discusses two privacy bills that would change how companies disclose online tracking and data breaches, while not compulsively forcing them to overhaul their practices.

“Even though many companies already disclose breaches that just include login credentials, it's still voluntary, so it would be expected that by making it mandatory, we're going to continue to see in the coming years an increase in the number of breach disclosures,” Newby said.
