NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman To Tighten Internet Security Laws



While private companies seek to protect consumers and businesses from security breaches, NY attorney general, Eric Schneiderman thinks the government needs to get involved in cracking down on criminal hackers. He said, “The last time New York’s law to protect personal data was updated, Facebook was a one-year startup and tweeting was limited to birds, ” as reported by

With many millions of New Yorkers having their personal information exposed in an estimated 5, 000 security breaches, Schneiderman hopes to create “unprecedented safeguards” that will make New York one of the toughest anti-hacking states in the country. The attorney general seeks to empower the police to investigate and prosecute cyber criminals, according to the Jamestown Sun. Employers and retailers will be expected to increase the amount of information they are responsible for protecting. This comes as President Obama has promised to improve internet safeguards nationally and cyber attacks in New York have tripled between 2006 and 2013.
