State Sen. Josh Becker, D-Calif., introduced a bill to strengthen California's data broker law. Senate Bill 1059 proposes stricter rules for data brokers' annual registration and reporting requirements while increasing the penalties scheme. The California Privacy Protection Agency would share enforcement with the California Department of Justice under the bill. "Just because we live and work in the Digital Age does not mean we waive our rights to privacy," Becker said, adding personal data is a "prized commodity" to brokers and the amount of data they collect "is staggering."
