Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) has introduced the Consumer Privacy Protection Act of 2017. The bill would place requirements on companies with sensitive consumer information, such as Equifax, to maintain safeguards to ensure the privacy and security of such data, and to notify consumers when that sensitive data is breached. The bill’s co-sponsors include Senators Markey, Blumenthal, Wyden, Franken, Baldwin, and Harris.
