FTC Seeks Comment as Part of Review of Health Breach Notification Rule

 In NEWS, Uncategorized

The Federal Trade Commission is seeking comment on whether proposed changes should be made to a decade-old rule that requires certain companies that provide or service personal health records to notify consumers and the Commission of a data breach.  The Health Breach Notification Rule review is part of the FTC’s periodic review of its rules to ensure they are keeping pace with changes in the economy, technology, and business models.  The FTC will be accepting comment on these questions for 90 days after the Rule review notice is published in the Federal Register. Instructions on how to file comments can be found in the Federal Register notice. Once processed, the comments on the Rule review will be posted to Regulations.gov.  https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2020/05/ftc-seeks-comment-part-review-health-breach-notification-rule?utm_source=govdelivery
