Re: RIGHT - Pass a law, that will fix it
This law was passed late last year. It does not go into effect until 2020 (absent an amendment delaying its effective date).

Companies have time -- big or small.

That said, someone earnestly trying their best is going to fare better than someone who just screwed up big time and doesn't seem to care.

Re: RIGHT - Pass a law, that will fix it
@Joe, definitely understandable. The upstarts are just starting to gain footing, if they are lucky enough. Not sure if there already is but for scenarios like an upstart would you think it wise to delay enforcement of those regulations as long as their is a valid corporate roadmap towards implementing them?

Or would you see it as, regardless of corporate titan or company upstart a company is a company and they all have to follow the same rules?

Re: Systemic Change
Apologies, I should have specified. When I stated encrypt your data it should be scoped encryption. It is folly to try to encrypt all data. Specifcally you should encrypt sensitive data. But to ensure that you scope is accurate it needs to be segmented. 

I 100% concur that encrypting all data is implausible.

Re: RIGHT - Pass a law, that will fix it
@Ryan: Moreover, as my home-state governor Charlie Baker put it when keynoting ThingWorx a few years back, big mega-corporations secretly love regulations (to some extent) because they're the only ones that can afford to keep up with them -- while scrappy upstarts are driven out of business.

Re: Systemic Change
It remains to be seen, though, if federal data-breach notification laws will come into play -- and preempt preexisting state laws on that front.

Re: Systemic Change
A law that wholesale forbids any but the strictest security practices could undermine the Business Judgement Rule. That makes sense. That is why having the balance becomes more important. There business that may them secure and provide services, I say Google is one of them as long as you do not consider privacy a major issue.

Moreover, as much as I like security, it can't be forgotten that security and accessibility are at constant odds with each other It actually makes sense when you consider CIA. Keeping the balance between confidentiality, integrity and availability what makes security.

Re: Biometrics
I'd anticipate that biometric-data clause getting fought tooth and naiL Yes, it makes sense. As we are using it more and more (such as FaceID) there will be more regulations around it.

"Oh, we are sorry we lost your data but we did tell you quicker then we use to" Yes, I hear you. That would be just not convincing and not helpful at all.
