The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation held a hearing on Wednesday. The group is focusing on the best ways to improve the protection of consumer data. There has been a rise of data breaches including a high-profile breach at Target and less-reported breaches at companies like Neiman Marcus and Snapchat. This hearing examined the risks these recent data breaches pose for consumers, along with the current lack of federal data security protections.
