Experts welcome call for security breach notification law

An article by Nestor E. Arellano in ITWorldCanada.com includes:

Canadian privacy law experts support a proposal that organizations be required to notify clients if their personal information has become vulnerable due to a security breach.

The proposal was initially made by the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) earlier this week.

CIPPIC said the federal government should have "breach notification laws" similar to those in place in more than 30 American states.
