David Walton Discusses Big Data and the Adoption of a National Breach Standard in SC Magazine

Friday, May 2, 2014

In an article titled “In Big Data report, White House calls for national breach reporting standard,” David Walton, co-chair of Cozen O'Connor's Privacy, Data and Cybersecurity group, shares his opinion on the adoption of a national standard for reporting data breaches. David told SCMagazine.com that, while he was in support of a national breach standard being passed, it may still be an uphill battle.

“I think it would be great to have a national breach standard, because, unfortunately, we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg as far as breach activity,” Walton said. “On one hand, [state-by-state legislation] works because it's case specific, but, on the other hand, it's harder to counsel clients on a gray standard.”
