New York Senator Chuck Schumer is calling on the federal government to release more information about recent data breaches, and he urged Uncle Sam to step up enforcement against cyberattacks.
Hackers recently infiltrated several major U.S. companies as well as local government servers on Long Island, and the Senate Majority Leader said federal regulators and enforcers should up their game to protect New Yorkers.
The Federal Trade Commission must release more details about breaches and that the Department of Justice should go after the perpetrators, said the pol.
“It’s a heck of a lot of personal information that’s at risk,” Schumer told reporters during a press conference in Midtown Sunday. “We want to know who took it, what they’ve done with it, and what consumers need to do ahead of the problem.”
