some breach notification letters do a good job of telling users what
happened to their data, a "substantial number" do not, Simitian said,
adding that the lack of information leaves consumers "more confused
News:State Sen. Joe Simitian's bill would require companies involved to report to the state attorney general any data breach that affected more than 500 California residents
Sounds good, but why 500 people...why not even just ONE? If a company has you in their database and allows your info to be stolen then it seems logical to me that there should be some kind of a notification. When companies are held accountable for data breaches, only then will they start to take security seriously!
SPAM-posters beware! ®
How did he come up with that number 500? Seems like a typical 'official sounding' number pulled completely out of his ass. So having 499 people's info stolen and their lives turned up side down is all good.
