Security Breach Notification Bill Is Introduced

There's a bill in the House requiring companies to notify a person of any security breaches related to personal information.  House Minority Whip Blake Filippi from New Shoreham, says for the most part people currently have no say in how extremely sensitive personal information is handled.  Noting stolen data from companies like Equifax and Target, Filippi says if there's a problem, people have a right to know so they can protect themselves.   The bill calls for companies failing to provide notification to face fines of up to 150-thousand-dollars per data breach.
