Re: Systemic Change
Mandatory: Segment your data, encrypt your data, rotate your keys, least privilege access to that data. That makes good sense. Encryptions should be given anymore in this day of an age.

Re: RIGHT - Pass a law, that will fix it
More of bureaucratic red tape really. Not really all that effective to invoking beneficial change. I agree. I also think they are still needed as we would not have guidance where to go without them.

Re: RIGHT - Pass a law, that will fix it
Always a law, that does the trick - right? It makes sense. Law is one thing and implementation and enforcement of it something else. If we just have the low not much accomplished.

Unique identifier
California officials note how passport numbers are unique, government-issued, static identifiers, making them especially appealing to cybercriminals. Indeed, passport scans are hot on the Dark Web. This makes sense, it is a unique identifier, I also wonder can somebody find trace of travels from passport numbers.

Re: Systemic Change

I'm not sure I entirely agree -- especially when it comes to encryption, which is a hot-topic debate depending upon the context. It is, practically speaking, implausible if not impossible for enterprises to encrypt all of their data all of the time.

Moreover, as much as I like security, it can't be forgotten that security and accessibility are at constant odds with each other -- and that accessibllity remains a crucial and justified interest. A law that wholesale forbids any but the strictest security practices could undermine the Business Judgement Rule.

That said, we have to look at the type of data when it comes to policymaking and rule enforcement -- which even Europe does. Big difference between, say, an email address and personal-health information (PHI).

Biometrics
I'd anticipate that biometric-data clause getting fought tooth and nail (hah, pun unintended but acknowledged) by Silicon Valley powers-that-be. It may well go through nonetheless though -- and should help cement the trend to protect biometric data legally in the US.

Systemic Change
Instead of new legislation around loss of data, I think it would be more beneficial to impose more stringent requirements to perform business with sensitive data. Mandatory: Segment your data, encrypt your data, rotate your keys, least privilege access to that data. 

By making these items mandatory before conducting business you are taking a proactive approach to deter breaches instead of a reactive. 

"Oh, we are sorry we lost your data but we did tell you quicker then we use to" More of a band-aid approach.

I would have to agree. Unfortunately legislation is not a hard fix. More of bureaucratic red tape really. Not really all that effective to invoking beneficial change.

RIGHT - Pass a law, that will fix it
Always a law, that does the trick - right?  No, would wager that data breech situations will be managed by corporate stupid protocol - deny, deny and open up only a bit, deny more and stall until somebody gets hammered in a press conference and the Lawyers start circling.THEN the situation becomes more critical once the suits begin and suddenly it can all be blamed on ONE GUY (as at Equifax) who did not patch and, OF COURSE, ONLY limited amounts of data were perhaps compromised --- subject to revision at a later date.
