Schakowsky statement on the latest massive Facebook data breach

Today, Congresswoman Jan Schakowksy, a Chief Deputy Whip and the Senior Democrat on the Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection Subcommittee of the Energy And Commerce Committee, released the following statement in response to Facebook’s latest security breach:

“Another massive data breach. Another empty apology from a CEO. Another 50 million users’ privacy irrevocably breached.

“The callous disregard for privacy and data security exhibited by American corporations is an outrage. By refusing to take any substantial action in the face of massive data breach after massive data breach, Republicans in Congress are partly to blame. Republicans have been content with bringing CEO’s in to Congress for a public shaming. This is not action. We need to move forward immediately with legislative solution, and my Secure and Protect Americans’ Data Act is an excellent place to start. We owe it to the American people to protect their data. Clearly, self-regulation has failed.”
