NRF Calls for Fair Federal Data Breach Notification Law

In the wake of last year’s disastrous Equifax data breach and its subsequent cover-up, the National Retail Federation (NRF)—the world’s largest retail trade association—and other groups are demanding that any new data breach notification law passed by Congress should apply to all industries and “leave no holes.”

“American consumers want to know if their data has been breached no matter where the breach occurs,” NRF vice president and senior policy counsel Paul Martino said. “No industry should be allowed to keep its data breaches secret.”
