Our current legal scheme for data privacy and security is a patchwork of laws. Although there is a proposed bill at the U.S. Capitol, Congress has yet to enact any comprehensive data security legislation and probably will not do so anytime soon. For the time being, expect that the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will continue to fill that void. The FTC has focused significant attention on privacy and data security of consumer information in the last several years. Having just scored a court victory recognizing its authority to regulate cyberspace, the agency will continue to have a major presence in the changing technological and data privacy landscape.
