My new Townhall column reviews Tuesday’s O’Reilly-Milbank knock-down that took place on my show over the course of two hours Tuesday, and it deserves a lot more scrutiny for what it tells us about the journo-wars looming over 2016.
But take a moment to read the transcript of the conversation I had in hour three with FTC Commissioner Maureen Olhausen about the consequences of data breaches to U.S. companies, and perhaps this post from the weekend.
American employers cannot handle another wave of class action lawsuits on top of the already staggering costs of Obamacare and the avalanche of Obama-era regulations. Dragging Target and Neiman Marcus executives to the Hill to testify doesn’t help consumers or the employees who will pay the costs of these class-action lawsuits. Congress needs to enact a Safe Harbor built on best -practices scaled to the size of the business regulated. In the meantime, every company that collects any data whatsoever had better read what Commissioner Olhausen had to say then staff up their lawyers and data professionals devoted to data security.
