Legal departments may find themselves chatting with the government a little more often. Last week, Politico reported that a bipartisan group of congressional lawmakers is looking to require private companies working in key infrastructure—such as gas or IT services—or entities that do business with the government to tell Uncle Sam when they’ve been hacked.   

For many legal departments used to dealing with the stringent requirements set forth by the likes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), such a law probably wouldn’t place much of an additional strain on resources.
