Via Silicon Strategy, we learn that “Pressure grows for UK data loss disclosure:”
The UK is in desperate need of revisions to laws that govern the disclosure of information relating to data loss or theft, according to security experts.
Currently UK organisations that lose sensitive customer or employee data, or expose it to others, do not have to disclose details of the breach – even to those affected.
Martin Carmichael, CSO at McAfee, told silicon.com: “I think companies should be accountable. Accountability is a vital part of security and if a company has a data breach I think they should be prepared to talk about it.
My take: they monitor everything else in the UK, why not?
