Privacy & Security Law Report Quotes Partner Alysa Zeltzer Hutnik on the Data Security Outlook
April 21, 2014

Partner Alysa Zeltzer Hutnik was quoted in the Privacy & Security Law Report article “Data Security Outlook Is Uncertain Despite Proposed Senate Measures.” The article discusses how the outlook for congressional action on data security in 2014 remains unclear, despite bills introduced after the recent payment card breaches. Ms. Hutnik explained that the path forward is “uncertain at best. It is possible—and perhaps likely—that congressional interest will fade and the current legal landscape will remain intact. Even if that occurs, however, there is little doubt that federal and state enforcement agencies will continue to make data security a priority and use existing authority to adopt new initiatives as necessary to address new and emerging risks.”
