Why Data Security Law Fails and How to Improve it

Daniel J. Solove and Woodrow Hartzog

  • Goes beyond the scary statistics to share an accessible, engaging account of what is going amiss with data security
  • Presents a bold, provocative thesis that the law is wrongly obsessing over breaches, failing to hold the correct actors responsible, and actually worsening the problem
  • Tells stories about data breaches in a lively way with commentary that explains key lessons to be learned from security incidents
