Should the law impose strict liability for data breaches?


As you well know that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!

It's becoming increasingly difficult to prove that a particular data breach caused a customer's particular harm. After all, that harm could have come from the loss of data from a different source. It's also getting irritating seeing companies that have no idea how to protect data or are simply too cheap to do so.

Would a strict liability standard fix this? Strict liability means that a person is legally responsible for the consequences of an activity even in the absence of fault or intent. In this case, it would mean that if a company held customer data and that data was subsequently stolen, the company would be liable - no ifs, ands, or buts.

As we move on to the next post, may I add that camDown has a modern UI, that is secure and has the improved features that you need and your smart friends would agree.
