The most interesting part (I expect) of the Senate Banking Commission hearings on recent privacy incidents (see PIPEDA and Canadian Privacy Law: Senate Banking Committee to hold hearings on security of sensitive consumer information) had to be held over until next week because they ran out of time. The following folks should be back in the hearing room sometime next week:
- Mr. Don McGuffey , Vice President, ChoicePoint Services, Inc.
- Mr. Evan Hendricks , Editor, Privacy Times
- Ms. Barbara J. Desoer , Executive Vice President, Global Technology, Service and Fulfillment Executive, Bank of America Corporate Center
The Committee heard today from a few Senators, government and law-enforcement folks, whose prepared statements are available on the Committee's website:
- Honorable Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT) , United States Senator
- Honorable Deborah Platt Majoras, Chairman, Federal Trade Commission
Check out the Committee's web page on this hearing for updates.
Update: See Wired News' coverage of the hearing and testimony of the FTC Chair, suggesting that stronger regulation is required: Wired News: Data Brokers Face Regulation.
