Recently, the Obama administration sent a cybersecurity plan to the Senate for debate. The proposal outlined the universal regulations that all organizations should be required to adhere to in the case of a data breach. The recommendations included:
- The implementation of one system for all organizations to follow to share information about data breaches. In order to do this, the administration proposes that penalties are removed for organizations that report ongoing data breaches to the Department of Homeland Security.
