The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted 4-0 to file a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to data breach reporting requirements for telecommunications providers. Proposed requirements include reporting all types of data breaches regardless of intent and immediate consumer breach notification. FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said the updates "will take a much-needed, fresh look" at breach reporting with an eye to "protect consumers, increase security, and reduce the impact of future breaches." The NPRM comes with a 30-day public comment period after it's filed to the Federal Register.
