Ars Technica: Proposed data privacy law could send company execs to prison for 20 years

Ars Technica: Proposed data privacy law could send company execs to prison for 20 years. “A US senator has proposed a privacy law that could issue steep fines to companies and send their top executives to prison for up to 20 years if they violate Americans’ privacy. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. announced a discussion draft of his Consumer Data Protection Act yesterday. The bill would establish new privacy rules that major companies must follow and establish fines and prison sentences big enough to make even the largest companies take notice.”
