U.S. Sens. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., along with several other Democratic co-sponsors, have introduced the Consumer Privacy Protection Act of 2017. The act would require companies to take preventative measures against cyberattacks and data breaches by setting baseline privacy and data security standards. It would also require a company provide quick notice and adequate protection to the consumer in the event of a data breach. Baldwin said, “When it comes to the sensitive, personal information, we have to make sure American consumers have the information and the tools they need to protect themselves.”
