DLA Piper’s Thomas Boyd testifies on behalf of National Business Coalition
Thomas Boyd, co-chair of DLA Piper’s regulatory and government affairs practice, submitted a statement to the US senate judiciary committee on behalf of the National Business Coalition on E-Commerce and Privacy, to which he is counsel.
Several US retail executives, including John Mulligan, executive vice-president and chief financial officer for Target, and Michael Kingston, senior vice-president and chief information officer for the Neiman Marcus Group, appeared before the committee to respond to the recent data breaches that exposed payment card and personal information of millions of retail customers. Both companies had significant breaches of personal consumer information last month.
In his testimony, Boyd, himself a former assistant attorney-general under president Ronald Reagan, stressed the need for a uniform national standard for data security and breach notification.
