The FCC has proposed more rigorous data breach reporting requirements for telecom carriers in response to breaches that recently hit the telecommunications industry. On Wednesday, Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel shared the proposal in the form of a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), the first step in changing the FCC’s rules for alerting federal agencies and customers of data breaches. “Customers deserve to be protected against the increase in frequency, sophistication, and scale of these data leaks, and the consequences that can last years after an exposure of personal information,” Chairwoman Rosenworcel said.
