California Disclosure Law

The Register reminded me that California's new security disclosure law became effective today. If you store data from customers in California, watch out. Here's an AP story, and here's a CNN story on a nationwide bill introduced last week. Managers understand the need for physical security, to lock doors and windows and install monitoring cameras. When will digital security be truly appreciated, with people, processes, and products allocated appropriately? Maybe when they're charged "up to $5,000 per violation, or up to $25,000 each day." Ouch.
