Senate Judiciary approves breach notification, data security bills

Three data breach notification and data security bills approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sept. 22, 2011, are scheduled for Senate debate. The Judiciary Committee approved S. 1535, the Personal Data Protection and Breach Accountability Act of 2011, authored by Sen. Richard Leahy, D-Vt.; S. 1408, the Data Breach Notification Act of 2011, offered by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; and S. 1151, the Personal Data Privacy and Security Act of 2011, also offered by Leahy.

It was the fourth time in as many sessions that Leahy's Personal Data Privacy and Security Act cleared the committee. The Judiciary Committee's ranking Republican member, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said he believes the legislation would overburden businesses with regulation, require too much notification and lead to more lawsuits against businesses.
