Bills Introduced – 01-08-14

Well we finally have the first bill of potential interest of the 2nd Session of the 113th Congress.

S 1897 Latest Title: A bill to prevent and mitigate identity theft, to ensure privacy, to provide notice of security breaches, and to enhance criminal penalties, law enforcement assistance, and other protections against security breaches, fraudulent access, and misuse of personally identifiable information. Sponsor: Sen Leahy, Patrick J. (D,VT)

This is probably a purely IT security bill and it possibly may only be related health care related issues, but the term ‘fraudulent access’ caught my attention. We’ll have to see what the bill actually says when it gets printed.
