Schneier on Security: Public Disclosure of Personal Data Loss

Schneier on Security: Public Disclosure of Personal Data Loss:
"It might seem that there has been an epidemic of personal-data losses recently, but that's an illusion. What we're seeing are the effects of a California law that requires companies to disclose losses of thefts of personal data. It's always been happening, only now companies have to go public with it."


I was wondering why all this stuff was in the news, and why the journalists were making big news out of it!
