Federal Government Focuses on Data and Cybersecurity
With identity theft on the rise and data breaches becoming an everyday occurrence, it’s no surprise that the Federal Government is paying attention now more than ever. Last year 13 million victims of identity theft resulted in $15 billion in losses due to fraud. In February, President Obama announced a Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP), and there is no doubt that data privacy will remain a prominent issue in the next Congress. The subject has already entered the discussions surrounding the 2016 presidential campaigns, particularly in the wake of a significant breach of the Democratic National Committee’s files.
