This is a hearing titled " Privacy in the Digital Age: Preventing Data Breaches and Combating Cyber Crime" held on February 4, 2014 before the Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Senator Patrick J. Leahy: "We are going to meet to examine how we can protect Americans from the growing dangers of data breaches and cyber crime in the digital age. Safeguarding American consumers and businesses from data breaches and cyber crime has been a priority of this Committee since 2005. For years, we tried to make sure that everybody understands this is not a Democratic or Republican issue. I have worked closely with Members on both sides of the aisle to advance meaningful data privacy legislation. In fact, I want to thank Senator Grassley for working with me very closely on this hearing, and I hope we can continue working together to advance the Personal Data Privacy and Security Act that I recently reintroduced to protect American consumers. [...] So before the Judiciary Committee today are representatives of Target and Neiman Marcus, as well as Consumers Union and Symantec. Later we will hear from the U.S. Secret Service, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Trade Commission." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Milligan, Michael R. Kingston, Delara Derakhshani, Fran Rosch, Edith Ramirez, William Noonan and Mythili Raman.
