2020 advocacy agenda: data security

Published by: Emily Leite

February 20, 2020 | Government Affairs

We’re living in a new decade, but the League’s mission remains the same with a laser focus on helping credit unions grow and serve their membership by ensuring data security. Your League is committed to a robust strategy to tackle this and other state and federal advocacy priorities in 2020.

To disincentivize cybercrimes in Ohio, we have worked to introduce House Bill 368, the Ohio Computer Crimes Act, which would make breaking into a secure online network for the purpose of extracting personal, identifiable information a felony. The legislation is pending in the Ohio House of Representatives and you can help us secure passage by submitting or customizing a pre-written message through VoterVoice. In advance of the CUNA GAC, we are also asking members of the Ohio Congressional Delegation to support legislation that would establish uniform national data standards to be followed by all industries holding consumer data. Federal pre-emption over state privacy laws is necessary to ensure uniformity and compliance.

If you would like to learn how you or your credit union can help with our efforts, we encourage you to contact Senior Vice President of Advocacy Emily Leite, Director of Legislative and Political Affairs Cory Fleming, or Manager of Legislative and Political Advocacy Andrew Canan.
