Senate Committee Approves Data Breach Bills Despite Heavy Opposition

The problems of data breach and lax information security are only growing more prevalent, so perhaps this time is different.
The Senate Judiciary Committee approved three data security and privacy bills over strong objections from Republican members last week. The opposition may complicate efforts to pass comprehensive cyber-security legislation this year, observers said.
