Uber’s CISO Makes Case for Uniform National Data Breach Notification Law

UberUber’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), John Flynn, made a case for a uniform national data breach notification law in his testimony to members of Congress (see penultimate paragraph of full written testimony):

I would like to conclude by stating that we strongly support a unified, national approach to data security and breach standards. We are proactively engaged in the many conversations in both the technical and policy communities to help identify what the critical components of federal data breach legislation should be, and are pleased to see this robust conversation taking place with various Members of Congress and your staff. We welcome the opportunity to be at the table to help all stakeholders understand the best practices.

I agree!

NTSC LogoIf you are a CISO of a company and are interested in participating in this discussion, please considering joining the National Technology Security Coalition (NTSC) in this effort to get an appropriate uniform federal data breach notification law passed. (Disclaimer, I am a member of the NTSC’s Policy Counsel and will be assisting in drafting proposed legislation.)
