December 22, 2010 Honolulu Star-Advertiser Editorial: Data Security Needs Attention

A December 22, 2010 Honolulu Star Advertiser Editorial calls for legislation that deals with the issue of data breaches and the need for more stringent requirements for notification to victims of data breaches. The need for such legislation has been underscored by four data breaches by the University of Hawaii which affected 100,000 victims in the past two years. Senator Mike Gabbard will introduce legislation addressing these problems. The Liberty Coalition, a private data watchdog, published a report December 20, 2010, which details the UH breaches and outlines suggested solutions.
