WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama wants Congress to pass legislation requiring companies to inform customers within 30 days if their data has been hacked.
Obama will also propose a bill that would prevent companies from selling student data to third parties.
A White House official says Obama will unveil the proposals Monday during a speech at the Federal Trade Commission. The announcement is part of the White House’s efforts to preview components of the president’s State of the Union address in the lead-up to the Jan. 20 speech.
The official insisted on anonymity to discuss the proposed legislation ahead of Obama’s announcement.
