A new law (formerly H.B. 6191) in Rhode Island will require that any business that owns or licenses computerized, unencrypted information on customers implement and maintain reasonable security measures to protect information.
A bill (H.R. 2431) introduced by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) would make it a federal crime to use falsified travel documents. Under the measure, it would be illegal to produce, transfer, possess, or use false travel documents. The bill would also provide training for transportation security officers on the best methods to identify false documents.
