CA breach notification law 2.0?...

More new laws! Recent news implies that California might enhance the current laws about data breach notification. They want to clear up how companies notify the affected parties - apparently there is too much jargon and legalese. Which leaves most folks not knowing what hapenned, how it hapenned and how they are affected.

We have talked about this on our blog - just saw that Tom Olzak also picks this one up.. I don't think this is making anything more stringent in terms of disclosure - it just lays down some ground rules on communication clarity. I am all for more clarity - had a tough time figuring out the nuances of a few disclosure letters myself!
