The Commerce Department released its online privacy green paper today, National Journal reports. The report calls for the creation of a Commerce Department privacy office and recommends a federal data breach notification law that would preempt state laws. "A comprehensive national approach to commercial data breach would provide clarity to individuals regarding the protection of their information throughout the United States, streamline industry compliance and allow businesses to develop a strong, nationwide data management strategy," the report states. The paper also recommends the development of Fair Information Practice Principles. The department is soliciting comments on the paper.
