Rod Brown Opinion Editorial on Data Security Published in Several Statewide Newspapers

General information

Last week an opinion editorial on data security, authored by CBA president and CEO, Rod Brown, was published in several media outlets including the Orange County Register, San Jose Mercury News, Contra Costa Times, Oakland Tribune and Sacramento Business Journal. A timely piece in light of the recent data breaches at two large retailers, it underscores the shared responsibility all parties involved in the payments system have when it comes to protecting consumers’ personal information. The op-ed also encourages policymakers to refrain from embracing any one solution or technology as the answer to any one concern because as the threat evolves so too must our efforts to combat fraud and data theft.
