A new law has been introduced in California that is aiming to make retailers that suffer breaches of security responsible for the financial damage that is dealt. With the recent large breaches, specifically at Target and Neiman Marcus, banks and credit card companies have been stuck with the bills for the breaches. This is not fair to them as it is not their fault or security that was in question and breached. The responsibility of security should be placed upon the retailer or company that is in question and that is exactly what this bill is trying to put into effect. It seems easy to encrypt information and that it should always be encrypted or protected, but it takes time and is not as simple as it seems. The only problem with the bill right now is that it totally neglects the government from the issues and only focuses on private businesses and the retailers. Although the passing of this bill is up in the air, it has sparked other such bills or ideas that could possibly be introduced in the future.
