Good idea but, as with a lot of ‘good ideas’ around cybersecurity…This made me think: 1. How would a company know that the information had been stolen?; 2. Shouldn’t this cover all personal information?; 3. GDPR already covers this, maybe California should adopt it?…:
If your passport number gets stolen by hackers, California Attorney General Anthony Becerra wants you to hear about it. He and state assembly member Marc Levine unveiled a bill Thursday that would require companies to inform customers when passport numbers and biometric data get caught up in a data breach.
“Knowledge is power, and all Californians deserve the power to take action if their passport numbers or biometric data have been accessed without authorization,” BecerraÂ said in a press releaseÂ Thursday.
