This is the November 8, 2017 hearing titled "Protecting Consumers in the Era of Major Data Breaches," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. From the opening statement of John Thune: "The massive data breaches at Equifax and Yahoo! illustrate quite dramatically that our Nation continues to face constantly evolving cyber threats to our personal data. Companies that collect and store personal data on American citizens must step up to provide adequate cybersecurity, and there should be consequences if they fail to do so. The Committee has made cybersecurity a priority, and I am hopeful that today's hearing will help the Committee to better understand these challenges as it considers legislation to address data breach notification and data security issues." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Paulino do Rego Barros Jr., Richard Smith, Marissa Mayer, Karen Zacharia, and Todd Wilkinson.
